Our engineers are just starting to use Pro-E. I'll definitely have to get my
hands on that viewer!

Our engineers also use SolidWorks. I don't have a license myself, but I can
go to an engineer, have him open the right part, move it to the position
that I want, and export it as a .dxf file. I can then open the .dxf file in
Illustrator. I was thrilled when we worked this out!
