Check out http://www.ps-exchange.com/ <http://www.ps-exchange.com/>
This is a Delcam service that allows you to download the PS-Exchange
software for free and use it to read the data file (DWG, Catia, Pro-E,
SolidWorks, Rhino etc. If you decide that you want to save the file in an
output format, e.g. IGES, STEP etc., you pay on a per file basis using a
voucher that you purchase on the web-site costing around $55 - $70.
Hope that helps!
