We are using this awsome tool to create Surfer grd files and then convert them with an inhouse GRD2Iges converter. Then we use this surface in CATIA.

What would be great is if Global mapper could export directly to Iges format.

    If you've already got an in-house convert to Iges format then it might be a simple matter for you to develop an export plugin for Global Mapper to add that format. See Global Mapper - Developers for details.

    Otherwise, if you have a format specification and some sample Iges files I can see if it would be very difficult to add on our end.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Do you know what grid formats that Catia supports? I'm not familiar with the software so I'm not sure what it can handle. You can export to numerous grid formats using the File->Export->Export Elevation Data menu command.

    Thanks,
