          BTW, it has to be noted!!!!
          It's very sad knowing it takes another program (which is not being used in todays market, another sad story) that can EASILY import and export thess files!

                They look like skeleton files form Pro-E. According to Solidworks, the files didn't contain any surface data. I'd start by checking your export source. What program generated the iges files?

                  The files where created in Catia V5 r16. You can tell this by opening the IGES file in Notepad or Wordpad. IGES and STEP files are just ascii text files that run through the appropriate translators. See the first view lines of the file below.

                  START RECORD GO HERE. S 1
                  1H,,1H;,20HCNEXT - IGES PRODUCT,19H61725_D40D0_NP_.igs,44HIBM CATIA IGESG 1
                  - CATIA Version 5 Release 16 ,27HCATIA Version 5 Release 16 ,32,75,6, G 2
                  75,15,5HPart2,1.0,2,2HMM,1000,1.0,15H20060814.193444,0.001,10000.0,12HhaG 3

                  The output for iges and step translation success is very dependent on the setting your customer used when translating the file. I would see if they can send step files instead.
