The Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES) is a file format which defines a vendor neutral data format that allows the digital exchange of information among Computer-aided design (CAD) systems.

Using IGES, a CAD user can exchange product data models in the form of circuit diagrams, wireframe, freeform surface or solid modeling representations. Applications supported by IGES include traditional engineering drawings, models for analysis, and other manufacturing functions.
