OSSmooth exports IGES file too big for inventor to handle

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


 


I exported a topology result using OSSmooth as an IGES file and it is freaking big (67Mb!).. My student copy of Inventor Pro 2013 cannot handle the file size and keeps hangs with the slightest action (even rotating the model!)..(Iv got a decent laptop config so that not an issue - Dell XPS L502X 8GB RAM i7-2670QM @2.2 GHz)


 


Can someone help me how I can export a smaller, easier to handle .iges file that Inventor will be happy with?


 


Thanks Sooo Much ^_^

If you have any CAE soft like Catia, Solidworks, Pro-E, try to load this IGES and export to STEP. Maybe STEP file is smaller.

Thank you so much for your quick reply Mr.Q.Nguyen-Dai. 


 


I tried converted STEP and CAT files but they were bigger (145-150Mb each)


 


But I found the solution to the problem in a similar fashion  :) .. I exported from OSSmooth to STL and it turns out it is only 1.6 Mb !! It also exports a solid instead of a surface (as in .iges), which is so much easier to modify in Inventor Pro. 


 


Thank you all and have a nice day  ;)
