I have SLDASM and SLDPRT files, how can I read them into Inventor or Autocad? Inventor 2012 will not read them and Autocad 2013 also.
You will need to export them from solidworks to a file type for inventor or autocad.
SolidWorks is released later in the calendar cycle than Autodesk products - so you must have 1 release later of Autodesk product to read SolidWorks file.
Example - you must have Inventor 2015 to read SolidWorks 2014 file. (In other words - Inventor 2015 will not read SolidWorks 2015).
If all you need to do is read the files - you might try A360 Viewer.
Otherwise, request neutral format file like STEP (*.stp) from source.
If all you want to do is open them and look at them, perhaps get a few measurements, you can download the free e-drawings viewer from SOLIDWORKS. That should allow you to view them.
In AutoCAD there is an specialized command for importing the solidworks geometry known as "ACISIN". Or else there is an another option you can export the solidworks file as (.dwg) file format [ File > Save As > Set format .dwg and save the file] Now you can directly open the .dwg file into AutoCAD.

Thank you all very much for the replies,
I think J.Maher's answer is what my issue is. I'll try to get the files changed to suit my version of Inventor/Autocad.
