No is the short answer!

Depends on what package your going into. Your best bet is to just suck it and see. if your having trouble with surfaces try and thicken them up , translate as a solid and then extract the surface in your end package. I've never used SW, but I tend to stear clear of Iges now, its an old format, I go for parasolid if I can help it.
