Exporting .max files to .igs files is possible with 3ds Max (previously 3D Studio Max), however it is not that simple. The conversion is done through the File ► Export ► IGES menu option and only the geometry will be saved. Typically a log file is also generated together with the .igs file that contains detailed information about the processing of the model.

The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned max to igs. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
