    "Edit" IGES Files in MasterCam

    I usually draw models with ProDesktop and then transfer them as IGES into MasterCam. When I import them with MC they show up as a bunch of lines, which is very confusing sometimes.
    Can someone tell me how to get rid of the lines which I don't need?

    I have attached one simple example. It contains a file exported as IGES and the same file as MC9. MC9 file wasn't made by me and I don't know how it was "edited".

    Thanks in advance.

    Which line are you talking about. Are you wanting surfaces, because and iges would only be a wire frame. If you want surfaces you would have to re draw them, I think.

    Wind rider bring you file in and hit the buttons "ALT S" and this will shade the surfaces. I brought in your IGS and all I got was points and Surfaces.

    Sluggo Igs was mainly used for surfaces it dose not support solids.

    PS your MC9 file has all the same data.
