I have seen in the forum that material properties aren't written; I understand this. However@ I thought the material name would be included in the metadata; its fundamental manufacturing information. I am only interested in exporting a single SLDPRT files as STEP while maintaining some reference to the material.. (I see colour info in there). I looked for export options for a switch to turn it on but could not see one.
Related... I assume also solidworks cosmetic threads are not exported to STEP in any form also? This would also be a nice-to-have...
(atttached a trival 2016 part with two holes, one of which is tapped M20, material set to "AISI 1020", and the STEP AP203/AP214 conversions. I understand that AP203 is less likely to contain the data than AP214, the latter being an extension of the former)
