Default Import IGS file into gambit
Posts: n/a

I imported a 3D graphic igs file (transformed from the DXF file), but it is fully filled with vertexes and numerous tiny element made of tiny edges.

I found it is totally diffifult to generate the surface for the figure and further mesh on that. could anyone can provide any suggestions?

Thx a lot

I operate a business that specializes in CAD neutral file healing, repair and simplification. We can edit any iges file to collapse small details. Our website is and you can email for more information at

Don't even bother with an iges import, it almost a complete waste of time. If the geometry is 2D, create a 2D Solid [Autocad R12, ....R2000, MDesktop or even via solid works] if 3D, create a 3D solid. Export the geometry via the Sat translator. The geometry once imported into Gambit is real [i.e. 2D Face or 3D solid. So Unstructured or Hybrid meshing is really easy.

Even for the most complicated geometry it a cinch

Hope this helps.
