    SW exporting

      I have SW 2005 personal edition and have read the help articles on exporting. All it tells is to go to 'file', 'save as', 'save as type', etc. It makes it out to be easy but upon going there I have no option to save as a useful file type. I am trying to convert to a .STEP file but the option doesn't appear. Could it be that ability to save as a .STEP file doesn't come stock with the personal edition?

          You're kind of SOL on this one. Personal edition is for learning solidworks ony. One of the ways Solidworks prevents it from being used commercially is by disabling export to other 'useful' formats.
