ATTN: Peter Williams - Catia users...

We are Catia users and have had similar problems (overlapping edges and bad
geometry) using Catia's IGES converter. We've been using an IGES converter
from Compunix and it's worked extremely well - no more complaints of
"furball" models from our vendors. It's kind of pricey at $5,500 for a
single-user license for the bidirectional converter (single direction,
Catia-to-IGES is $3,600, and IGES-to-Catia is $2,600 for single-user) but
we've had no problems so far. You can find them at
You'll have to ask about an SGI version (we're running IBM RS6000's)
but I'm sure they'll have something (Hans Zink is a good contact).

You might also try a search using "Catia" or "Catia Operators Exchange" or
"COE" as subjects. I tried this and came up with several Catia user groups.

Good Luck,
