    SW to STEP - "any" string is added to component names

    Kevin Davidson
      Below is a snippet from a test STEP file I exported out of SW. For some reason, it is writing these 'ANY' strings into the STEP data, and when ProE imports this, the filename becomes solidworks_2007_cylinder1_any.prt.1 which is a problem. I don't see this in the STEP file from other cad systems. I will investigate the ProE side, but does anyone by chance know how to prevent or control this on the SW side?

      #447 = PRODUCT_DEFINITION_FORMATION_WITH_SPECIFIED_SOURCE ( 'ANY', '', #453, .NOT_KNOWN. ) ;
      #448 = PRODUCT_DEFINITION ( 'UNKNOWN', '', #447, #449 ) ;
      #449 = PRODUCT_DEFINITION_CONTEXT ( 'detailed design', #451, 'design' ) ;
      #450 = APPLICATION_PROTOCOL_DEFINITION ( 'draft international standard', 'automotive_design', 1998, #451 ) ;
      #451 = APPLICATION_CONTEXT ( 'automotive_design' ) ;
      #452 = SHAPE_DEFINITION_REPRESENTATION ( #445, #377 ) ;
      #453 = PRODUCT ( 'solidworks_2007_cylinder1', 'solidworks_2007_cylinder1', '', ( #454 ) ) ;
