The Intergraph interface to ISOGEN creates an ASCII data file containing the input to ISOGEN. Since ISOGEN requires the input data to be in binary format, a program named ISOA_BGEN is run to convert this ASCII data file to binary. ISOA_BGEN creates the binary output file FOR036.# which IZOD2 uses to generate the isometric drawing.
