    CAD Viewing software
    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.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    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.

    Does Solid Works or PTC offer some type of Mac viewer?

     iPhone 4 16GB
     iPad (White, 32GB, 3rd Gen)

    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.
