I'm looking for software for opening and viewing solid model CAD files such as .stp (STEP), .igs (IGES), dxf, .dwg, and .sldprt. I know e-Drawings is free from SolidWorks but that only views e-Drawings files.

Almost all the Mac CAD software can easily open dxf and dwg files. The others I'm not so sure about.

My most important need is to open and view .stp (STEP) and .igs (IGES) CAD files.

This program says it can read STEP and IGS (and other CAD) files, plus a lot more:

It's $130, but that's cheap as CAD programs go.
