File formats of CAD apps are well kept secrets most of the time. It's part of their intellectual property.
If the file contains parametric descriptions (which I would expect from a company which has Parametric in its name http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif) you'd need your own tesselator.
Expect some formats to be compressed, too.
