I have a group of six IGES files that were created in CATIA and won't import
into SolidWorks 2004. When I try to import any of these IGES files,
SolidWorks produces the following error message after working for only a few
Unable to read IGES file. File was truncated or contains invalid data.
I suspect the IGES files contain entities that are not supported by
SolidWorks since I can view part of the IGES geometry in other programs.
Unfortunately, none of the programs I have can load all of the geometry, so
I can't export it in another format.
I am currently exploring my options and was wondering if anyone can make a
suggestion for a translation program or service bureau.
