    step file import problem in 2016

    Anton Petrov

      Since going to 2016 (beta, pre-release and sp0) i can't import .stp files into solidworks.  I get an error- "This model is outside of the 1000m modelling limit".  The model isn't actually that large.  I was able to open these files in 2015 and prior and not just these type of files but the exact same files.  I tried changing settings to use template units or document units to no avail.  The step files were created in Siemens.  Not sure if step files created in other software packages would have a problem as well.   


      Any ideas what this could be?  Thanks.
