How to open .cad files in Inventor 2013

Does anyone know if Inventor can open files with the extension .cad?  I have a customer who keeps sending me this type of file and I cannot view in Inventor.

I don't see where these are available for opening in the format in Inventor.  These appear to be Quickcad files.  Are they part models or 2D drawings?  I would ask to have them sent in either a step format (for 3d models) or dxf for drawings.
