  Dear Mr.Sherric,

In IDEAS Masterseries 4.0 within the "DESIGN" Task there is the "Rapid
Prototyping" Application. It can produce very good STL files from your part
If you do not have a license for it as I understand, then a different approach
would be to try downloading an STL manipulation software from which might be able to import IGES and convert it into STL.
