RE: Shareware for making STL file from iges files

Date: Tue Aug 17 1999 - 05:32:19 EEST

Hi Mr. Sunil,

We've tried out Compunix's IGES-STL converter and it's pretty good. You can
try the software by downloading it from:
We're also happy with Brock-Rooney's IGS-STL converter. However, i've
forgotten their website, so you might have to perform a search for it.
Hope this helps.
