What are my best options for converting a catia file into iges or stp........I know the most logical answer would be ask someone with catia package but this is not possible. I currently used SW.......Anyone any ideas ?

What is the file type you have? Solidworks will open CATIA Graphics (*.cgr) have you tried to open it in solidworks?

Don't use Catia Graphics, it's a tesselated format similar to an STL file and will not preserve geometry accurately. I do not know how you can open a CATPart in SolidWorks.
