Hi, can anyone recommend a free Pro-E file viewer that someone can install to look at pro-e parts and assemblies?  I'd also like it to be able to look at .STP files.

Thanks a bunch,

But eDrawings has to be a pre-thoughtout procedure.
PVExpress is I believe limited to PTC customers, so there is that limitation.

I used Delcam, free viewer, to open Wildfire parts and assemblies.

I got what I needed. I am able to view and print Pro-e asy, prt, drw (embeded) or pic files.

If the drawing creator turns on the config.pro option
save_drawing_picture_file and sets it to embeded then P-View express will show it without creating a separate pic file.

If set to both Pro will create a file like filename.pic.1 and it will also embed it in the drawing.
