.ies File Extension

Developer: Illuminating Engineering Society
File type: IES Photometric Data File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ies. Files with the file extension .ies can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ies files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ies file?

Data files that are created using the standardized IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) photometric format are called IES files; which is why IES files are deemed IES Photometric Data Files. These files save the light quantities and measurements, which is why they are useful for the simulation of lighting systems before they are installed in buildings. Aside from that, IES files are also useful for the examination of light source illumination for outdoor sites like roadways, etc. Since they deal mainly with lighting and photometry data, many 3D programs use this file format as well as most lighting manufacturers publish this file format. IES files are usually opened and viewed with the use of Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013, an application mostly used by designers and architects. It allows users to create architectural designs of the highest quality and accuracy. This application runs on a Windows operating system. The IES files can also be opened with the use of other applications such as AutoDesSys RenderZone, LTI Optics Photopia and Musco Sports Lighting Lumen Micro.

how to open a .ies file?

Launch a .ies file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .ies file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .ies files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ies file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ies file will open the correct application.

Musco Sports Lighting Lumen Micro

Musco Sports Lighting Lumen Micro

Musco Sports Lighting is one of the manufacturers benefited by Lighting Technologies, who has been providing lighting software since the early 1980's, and FiELD and Photopia since the 1990's. Data files that are made with the use of the standardized Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) photometric format are known as IES files and are believed to be IES Photometric Data Files. These files save the light magnitude and measurements that is the reason why they are helpful for the simulation of lighting systems even before they are installed in buildings. Since their company deals primarily with lighting and photometry data, 3D programs also utilize as well as most lighting manufacturers publish this file format. IES files are normally accessed and viewed with the use of Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013, an application commonly used by designers and architects, which enables users to create architectural designs of the highest quality and accuracy. This application works on a Windows operating system. The IES files can also be opened with AutoDesSys RenderZone, LTI Optics Photopia and Musco Sports Lighting Lumen Micro applications.
Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013

Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013

Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013 is an architectural design software that used mainly for Building Information Modeling (BIM) and for capturing and analyzation of design, design documentation, and construction. It provides models that will help in making informed design decisions to be able to support sustainable designs, fabrication, construction planning and clash detection. The basis for all building components that are designed in Revit is the Parametric Components or Families which helps in designing cabinetry and equipment or building parts, walls and columns. It also features a collaborative design process called the Revit Server which enables users to share models across the project team even if they are on different locations. It has an integrated collection of models on a single server which is accessible by users from the local server. This process allows multiple users to share information and save their projects in a central file. The built-in Redundancy helps in keeping this process secure an protected in cases where there's loss in WAN connectivity.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ies files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ies. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
