The latest standards that I am aware of can be found here. It is a full specification in PDF format. It is a large file.
How to read a IGS with vb.net/C#?
I am wanting to play around with CAM using vb.net or C#. Can anyone give me any direction on where to get any info on this. I have no idea how read the IGS info.
There is a project - "Monocam", which is based on C# and Mono. Don't know about
IGES, but it probably reads STL. Look it up in old posts.
Have you ever looked at the contents of an IGES file? It couldn't be more poorly laid out and hard to read if it had been a binary format. If I were you I'd try for a more easily understood format. Even SAT files are easier to understand than IGES.
However, IGES has been a standard since before Moses so you are likely to find source code all over that attempts to make sense of it.
I too need it...
