How to open file with IGS extension?

IGS file description

The files created with the .IGS file extension are usually related with 2D and 3D vector graphics. The IGS file format has been created on the basis of the IGES which is Initial Graphics Exchange Specification standard. The same standard is used by a number of computer aided drawing (CAD) software applications. IGS files are stores in a text-based format based on ASCII. This facilitates the user to save and export the vector graphics data. The IGS format is frequently used to transfer the files with 3D model amid the varied CAD programs. This way a user, who has created a model file using a particular application, can send that file to another user, without worrying about if the second user would be able to open the file or not.

After this operation, the problems with opening the IGS file should be solved forever.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the IGS file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
