      Is it possible to output a STEP AP242 file containing multiple 3DViews?

       

      Say I've got a .SLDPRT with annotations/tolerances on it in several different 3D Views.

      When I publish a STEP 242 file, all I get is one view and it's named "Current Model View".

       

      The attached SLDPRT has 3DViews named "SW-Front" and "SW-Top". Only those dimensions that were created in the Front plane are included in "SW-Front", and only those dimensions that were created in the Top plane are included in "SW-Top"

      I'd like the resultant STEP AP242 file to contain 2 views. As it is I only get one.

       

      Likewise if I rotate the same model in SW to an Isometric view (so that all the dimensions are visible), publishing that as AP242 will save the Iso view as the "Current model View" in the STEP file (again the ONLY view in the file), but then some of the dimensions don't make it into the file.

       

      Thanks in advance
