Guideline 4.0 can open .CATParts and .CATProduct files: condition to this functionality is that both Guideline 4.0 and CATIA V5 are installed and licensed into the PC involved.

See an example in this VIDEO

At the end of the operation, a tassellated (light copy) 3D model is generated, ready for viewing or clamping operations. Model can also be saved, generating a .bly file.

.bly file contains the information where the original CATIA file was at the opening (full name, including path): this support further operations (such as FCS seats creation), even if the .bly file is moved into different locations. Original CATIA file, however, must remain where it was when opened, or those functionalities will not work.
