I-deas drafting

Hello everyone,
I have thousand of files with DWG extension created with I-deas. I can not open them because I dont have this software and i can not find anywhere a viewer or something like that. Can anyone help me to how open and visualize those drawings?
Best regards,
Xabier

Accepted answer

If you know anyone that has I-DEAS, they can convert to PDF for you. I seriously doubt that anything is going to open/read an I-DEAS .asc file.

Best option might be to contact Siemens, since they now own I-DEAS and see if they have an option you can explore.

Good luck.
