Actify's "3D View" is a native CAD/CAM viewer for Windows.
where no CAD system or translation is required. Share
native CAD files with everyone.

View, Measure and Markup the following native CAD formats:
    ** NEW  Pro/E,
    IGES 2D/3D,
    Solid Edge,
    Mechanical Desktop,
    Autodesk DWG/DXF,
    VRML 1.0/2.0
    3DStudio and
    ISO G-Code

3D View is a very useful tool  for anyone that needs to
visualize, measure  and markup 3D CAD/CAM models without
being  required to have access to or know how to use a
full featured CAD/CAM system. It makes it easy for a
designer to share their work with many non-CAD
users (customers, suppliers, managers, sales marketing
and other engineers.

Try It. A full featured trial is available at:
