    CAD File Viewer with Measurements

    Matthew Kusters

      I am looking for a CAD file viewer.  It needs to be able to view .iges, .step, and those other universal file types.  I would also like to to view solidworks files.

       

      Not only am I looking to view parts I am also looking for the capability to take measurements of the parts.  I do not require any other features.

       

      Unfortunately the solidworks viewer does not work because I can only open solidworks files and no measurements can be taken.  The edrawings viewer I know can take measurements of solidworks files but unfortunately does not open .step or .iges files.  Unfortunately I cannot justify another seat of solidworks when we only occasionally may need to measure some features on a customer supplied CAD file.

       

      Can anyone recommend a program that can do this?
