Thanks very much for the response. I think you are absolutely right about
them not needing the actual file.

But say I wanted to include a reader and the files...or say I wanted to send
the files to a non-3D/RP there a way for me to let the Luddites
easily view the work, without them needing to get into any licensing or demo
periods, or technical help manuals...anybody got any good ideas?

I don't have Solidview, or anything else really, that specifically relates
to sophisticated RP software.
