CAD (solidworks) narrow gauge steam loco models

Some of you might be interested in CAD models I have found on https://grabcad.com

If you join grabcad (free and easy) you can download these models.
Ideally you would need solidworks licence, but you can also download (free) solidworks e-viewer.

I personally am particularly interested in the second (green) model.
It is another, built for Australia, Fowler, with interesting outside Joy valve gear.
Unfortunately my "Personal" Fusion 360 licence doesn't allow me to import these models into Fusion :(

So if any of you good chaps have solidworks and is willing to help, I would be grateful for assistance :thumbup:

ps the direct link to these models is:

OK, I think my solidworks problem is sorted with the help of grabcad

Instructions are here:
https://grabcad.com/tutorials/how-to-co ... -workbench

after uploading solidworks files into my workbench in grabcad, I can view the files in grabcad:

and then I can download them as .step files, which in turn are very easily opened in Fusion 360 :thumbright: :
