    My friend gave me a PCB layout in Orcad PCB format with .MAX and .DSN file extension.

    Can somebody tell me how to see/print it?
    Without the main cadence orcad PCB layout editor which is expensive and too large to download ≈600MB.

    please gimme the link of the required reader....please

    You could ask your friend to extract the gerbers and email you them.
    You could open them in a gerber viewer program like Viewmate.

    I have some old schematics done using Orcad from 1996 time frame.
    Is there any viewer I can use to open these files and view them?
    I tried the link http://www.cadence.com/products/orca...downloads.aspx but it is Viewdraw viewer to Orcad, not Orcad Schematic viewer.

    Thanks for help.
