I just installed Inventor Viewer 2013 in hopes of viewing an STP file. Our German parent company is starting to post most of our drawings in STP file format and I do not have a way of viewing these files. If I open the STP in a text editor, it indicates that it was made in Inventor 2012 in the header. But, when I try to open a file in Inventor Viewer 2013, there is no STP option available in the filter box.
Is this not going to work?
Is there another STP viewer available?
Try looking for a STEP file viewer. There are loads.
Inventor View (as it's name suggests) is for viewing Inventor files.
Do you have Inventor Fusion, Inventor, or AutoCAD.
You can get the free Inventor Fusion here http://labs.autodesk.com/technologies/fusion/downl
