Can't Open IGS Files

Recommended Posts

I can't open IGES files or save sT models in the IGES format. I use to beable to open IGES files by selecting the "Enable: IGES (.igs;.iges)" format in the Open dialogue.

This problem has occurred after installing a new hard drive and reinstalling operating system and all software again. I reinstalled sT a few times to try and correct the problem. I moved the IGES files to other folders, and tried multiple configurations in the solidThinking IGES Import box.

I took my Mac PowerPC G5 to an Apple store to get checked out and they said it was fine. I really need to export IGES files to others who use other modeling programs.

Thank you for any assistance

In this case it is likely that your solidThinking application now has an incorrect path name to your new hard drive or the name of your hard drive is using non-stardard characters, such as punctuation marks. For example: "Darren's HD". If so, just rename your hard drive and that should take care of it.

Cheers,

I had named my new hard drive with punctuation marks in it, so I renamed it without them and it solved the problem. That's a real relief.

Thanks Darren,

Joaquin
