The Swirl IGES translator helps CAD users convert product data models from IGES to VRML or X3D formats, among others. With the Swirl IGES translator, you can put your 3D, IGES content into VRML or X3D formats and bring them to life by adding animation and interactive elements for a better user experience. Swirl IGES Translator is compatible with Windows. Also, because X3D and VRML are open standards, they are viewable by more users. The interactive, X3D format is designed for online communications, so if you need to make interactive, online content with your IGES files, the Swirl IGES translator takes you one step closer to working in X3D. However, the translator is not an authorship tool for X3D or VRML, so a second, authoring tool will be necessary to work with the files. Also, some information can be lost during conversion, although the product minimizes this as much as possible. The Swirl IGES translator is recommended for anybody who needs to convert IGES files to X3D or VRML in order to produce higher quality content.
