IGES is not a good format for importing into ANSYS. The best way is using the direct SW reader (which requires an additional license option), or failing that use parasolid. Parasolid is the native kernal for both SW and ANSYS so you should not have a problem in translation.

What is it? It looks like a forest speeder from the Planet Endor...... Or am I just showing my age?

Text or binary, both will work the same. But the binary one will be a faction of the file size.
