Export Geometry to Step-File

Hi,

I export a Component to a STEP-File (.step). But when I try to open it in Catia V5, there is no geometry in it. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance!

Contact Catia or switch to CATIA R2020x. I have used the latter, and STEP geometry exported from Visual Components is imported.

You can also look in the Catia V5 help file about import step/step postprocessor. It should indicate “hopefully” what step versions it supports and if there are compatibility issues. For example, if the CATIA V5 step import requirest mathematical data to generate geometry from the STEP file then you are out of luck.
