Hello all, we are a small manufacturer dealing with very large organizations such as GE who do everything in CATIA. I need to be able to go into their system and read their CATIA drawings to find the size information I need to manufacturer parts for them (Overall size: thickness, length, width, hole locations, etc) Is there a program/software that will allow me to do that without breaking the budgets here? We don't need to do any drawings or collaborations as yet, just read their data within their systems. Thanks for any help.

You will need to find a viewer: try a Google Search, the few products available should right up.
