Catia viewer for Mac


New member
Hello everyone!

It's David, I'm new here.

I use Catia in my work and I have a problem: when i want to show something to my boss I always have to send screen prints because he doesn't have Catia.

I download a viewer called 3DXML Player but it is only for windows. He is a Mac user.


My question is if you know any software to view Catia files in Mac.

Thank you very much!

there are several FREE cad viewer softwares on the web. if you do a search on google you would probably find at least a couple that can read iges and run in unix (mac is a unix system)

Also, if you just want to transfer lite wieght files you may want to expand your search to a viewer that can read the wrl format.

good luck

Thank you,

At the end we installed 3ds via, and the installation was successful but it doesn't work with the safari browser.

We will try the e-drawings with the stp files.

Thank you very much
