Yes, I think so. Deneba's Canvas may be the best cross-platform tool:
available for both Canvas and Windows, can read and write many
different formats including Adobe Illustrator '88 -- and has some
useful CAD features. If you use Canvas to move from Claris CAD
to Canvas format then you can read the Canvas files on the PC.
You can probably use scripting to batch read the Claris files and save
in a Canvas-readable format, then batch read the files into Canvas
and save in Canvas native format.
