.IGS is IGES Drawing File

An IGS file is a graphics file saved in a 2D/3D vector format based on the Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES). It can store wireframe models, surface or solid object representations, circuit diagrams, and other objects. IGS files are used by many CAD programs as a standard ASCII text-based format for saving and exporting vector data.

The IGES format was introduced in 1979 and became the standard for transferring three-dimensional models between CAD programs. In recent years, however, it has been replaced by the newer .STP format.
