IGS / STP file format support

Gerald D Lock
Attention developers!

There seems to be a distinct lack of translation from the 'popular' IGS & STP file formats from SolidWorks etc.. to 3DS format (for import to ArchiCAD of course)
There are a lot of plumbing & other manufacturers making their products available online in these formats.

Is there anything out there that I've missed? (for OSX in my case, but Win would also help the other 95% of the world!)

Otherwise, can this please be added to the 'Wish List' for ArchiCAD Santa?

an 'IGS in' and an 'STP in' add-on

ArchiCAD 24 (build 5004)

this kind of add-on / file converter would only be temporary I hope.
ArchiCAD needs to implement an entirely different modeling kernel - NURBS would be great.

This would change everything.

In the mean time there are things like this that help some -

ArchiCAD 25 5010 USA - Windows 10 Pro 64x - Dell 7720 64 GB 2400MHz ECC - Xeon E3 1535M v6 4.20GHz - (2) 1TB M.2 PCIe Class 50 SSD's - 17.3" UHD IPS (3840x2160) - Nvidia Quadro P5000 16GB GDDR5 - Maxwell Studio/Render Multilight 2 - Adobe Acrobat Pro
