We are a small company that has been doing work for one company that uses Wildfire. Since we do not have Wildfire or any system that can read the files in native, we have been getting IGES files from them. Recently, this company has made a new policy that they will only send us native files. Since we still want to work with them we are looking at software that would allow us to translate these files. Since I don't have any experience with Wildfire, I was hoping someone here could answer a few questions. First, when you make drawing files are these files "imbedded" into the part file, or are they saved as a different file. We need to be able to convert the solid model into something our shop can use, and view and print any drawings files. And if there are assembly files, we need to be able to work with them also. Does anybody know of any software that can do this short of purchasing a seat of Wildfire? Thanks for any and all help you can provide.
