  • igs format     IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) format that can be imported to most of the CAD software available today
  • stl format    STL (STereoLithography) format that can be imported to most of the CAD software available today
  • stp format    STEP (Standard for the Exchange of Product) format that can be imported to most of the CAD software available today
