Hello Everybody,

It seem harder to do, does somebody can help me about my problem.

 

I would be very glad for the understnading.

 

Looking forward to hear from somebody soon.

Not so easy in Femap, but might be possible.
In Femap, STL is a "mesh" format, while IGS is a "geometry" format.

You would need to use Geometry -> Surface -> From Mesh to turn the triangular STL elements into surface geometry. You will probably have to do this multiple times, as it is unlikely you will be able to pick all the mesh in one go and have it successfully convert into surface geometry in one go.

If you want the STL to be a solid, then once you have created a collection of surfaces which form a closed volume, then you can use Geometry-> Solid -> Stitch to create the solid.

Then you can export the solids (or surfaces) as IGS.

thanks for reply, but it is kind of dificult and very repeating process. Therefore I switch to geomagic design X software which is potential software for conversion but not 100%.

some part remain opened which need to be rectify by using CAD software.

it would be awesome if somebody have done 100% convresion fo STL into IGES format and can give me some idea or suggestion.

Looking forward to hear from somebody soon.
