Imports data from an IGES (*.igs or *.iges) file into the current drawing.

Displays the Select IGES File dialog box (a standard file selection dialog box) to enable you to locate and select the IGES file to import.

If import takes longer than 5 seconds, the IGES file is processed in the background and the Import icon is displayed in the status bar. Hence, you can continue to work on the drawing while the IGES file is processed. You can check the status of the import process by placing the cursor over the Import status bar icon and inspecting the tooltip that is displayed.

Once processing is done, a notification bubble is displayed on the Import icon. Click the link in the notification bubble to insert the imported IGES data in the current drawing.
