I need to import a model generated by another software that can only export to IGES. Preserving the names is important. I see the expected names for surfaces and points, but for curves (IGES type 126), the names are truncated to 8 characters when importing in Rhino.
I’ve done a minimal example file to reproduce the problem. The file has only one line. It’s name appears as ‘Long lin’ in Rhino, but should be ‘Long line name’.
line_out.igs (1.2 KB)
I’m a bit limited to test it in other software, but for example ‘ABViewer’ assigns the correct name to the imported name.
Any pointers if this is a Rhino bug or if the source file is at fault would be appreciated.
Update: I see this behaviour in Rhino for mac 5.3.2 as well as in latest Rhino WIP 5.4
