My mechanical cad system does not import IDF files. Does anyone know an excellent converter which can convert IDF files to STEP or IGES ?

I believe RS has a free converter to transfer to google sketch. Afaik google sketch can export to STEP.

google sketch cannot generate STEP. I used the converter to export to Collada file. Blender (free of charge ) can import Collada files (extension: dae) and save them to 3DS or WLR files. Then I can import the 3DS file or WLR file to Turbocad and save it as STEP or IGES.

Hodali, with that many "translations" of formats. I think that you possibly end up with some form of data corruption. This has happened to some of my 3D CAD mechanical colleagues in the past when translating formats.
