What are people using in the line of freeware to check their IGES files from TC?

I used to have something on the old computer but I don't remember what.

Here is another package (no iges), but find it has value when using other formats.
accutrans
Not quite free.  I use it mostly for DEM conversion.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

Greg, now I remember using CoCreate too. It was on my old computer and I can no longer find it on the net. Did they rename CoCreate? It looks like it is called Creo Elements now, but I don't see a free version.

Thank for the weblink Greg
I like this software, faster than I can color in than Paint.Net.
