File accuracy/approximation

Hello All,

 

Very often i work with molders that do not support SolidWorks file format and i must export to something else for them. Between all the files available in SolidWorks Save As command, which standard results in highest accuracy when exporting for making a mold? This is especially important for standard files: STEP, Parasolid, IGES, etc. Which does everyone prefer? Some standards allow you to change tolerance in exported files and some do not. (Given that you do not know what software your molder is using you you must convert into something generic)

 

Thanks!
