    Hey..!
    Here's what you need :

    File Type : IGES Drawing File
    Category : 3D Image Files
    Is it Common : No

    File Description : 2D/3D vector graphics format based on the Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES); used by many CAD programs as a standard ASCII text-based format for saving and exporting vector data; can store wireframe models, surface or solid object representations, circuit diagrams, and other objects. The IGES format was introduced in 1979 and has since become a standard for transferring three-dimensional models between CAD programs.

    Programs that open IGS files :

    In MAC OS :

    IMSI TurboCAD
    Nemetschek VectorWorks

    In Windows :

    IMSI TurboCAD
    Nemetschek VectorWorks
    Cimmetry Systems AutoVue
    Actify SpinFire Professional
    Autodesk AutoCAD with IGES Import plug-in
    Informative Graphics ModelPress Publisher or Reader

    All the best...! Have Fun...!
