Export (convert) an STEP file to HDF5 geometry file using a Python scripted library

Post by dfosorio11 »

Hello dear community and developers!!
I hope you are having a great day and big hugs to everyone

I am currently working in developing a Python-scripted library which has as input a IGES (preferably, or STEP file) which is File Data and Parameter Data based for basic geometry (line, circle, edge) etc.
The objective is to convert this geometry parameters into a HDF5 geometry file in Python.
I have already opened and read for each line in the IGES File and proccesed it for the main geometry Data Entries (DE). I need help converting this into geometric parameters that the 3D HDF5 integer file works it out and generates the 3D geometry for processing.

Thanks a lot!

Big hugs
