MODView is a low cost CAD viewer and translator. Originally developed for the Korean motor industry to enable customers and suppliers the ability to view and convert large automotive files without the need for expensive CAD software. 

It is now the viewer for the KIA and Hyundai motor groups.

MODView has the ability to import almost all 3D CAD files types and also has the ability to read 2D file types such as .catdrawing files. These can be then imported out in many 'industry standard' formats.

Please see below the list of file formats supported.



Get up to speed fast within a couple of hours giving you a fast ROI



No need to spend money on expensive CAD software purely to view and translate



Allows engineers who may not need to modify or create geometry to view and translate models



Import all major 3D file formats and easily convert to a usable CAD type
