    The file extension is exactly that, .igs. I can't get it to open using anything, nor can I find very much information on what programs even deal with it. I see alot of stuff about .iges.

    These files were created about 6 years ago. I've tried TurboCad demo, eDrawings demo, TouchCad demo. Nothing works. All say unsupported file.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    It might be helpful if you told us what the extension is used for.

    It's used to open 3d data files. It might be helpful if you knew what the extension was if you were going to recommend a program to open it.

    I found this online.

    IGS IGES - Initial Graphics Exchange Specification

    Did you try a program that will open an IGES to see if it opens a IGS also?
