I'm having a difficult time with saving one of my assemblies? I have an assembly that is about 1,500 kb and every time I try to save it as a step file, it creates an ERR message. I can't open the ERR message to figure out what is wrong?
I just updated to SW2016 SP3 earlier this week. Coincidentally I was trying to create a step file from an assy also. It was taking so long that I could not tell if it had stopped or not. I started opening each part individually in SW (part was prepared by someone else) and saving them as individual step files. One part was taking a long time. I stopped it and did a geometry check on it which reported a number of problems with the files. I did not correct everything but after repairing a few items I was able to complete the step file of the assy.
Without seeing the error mesg, how can we know what the issue is?
you might post the the assembly here so we can have a look?
It took a little while, but your advice was handy.
Happy to help
