Does anyone know of an app that can read these files other than Stud.io? I heard
Stud.io was a version of CAD,but can't find anything that will open the io
files. Need to replace my laptop, but I'd like to be able to view MOC'S
in the meantime.

Cheers

Why don’t use Studio itself? (See the red Studio icon on every page on BrickLink?)

Otherwise, the .io files, Studio’s files, are password-protected ZIP files of
slightly modified LDraw files and XML for the page design of the instructions.

So, if you know the password, you can see the models in LDraw-compatible applications.

So the question is... what is the password?
