STEP Export Part Configs All "Default"

Question asked by Jim Paige on Apr 7, 2017

I have a simple assembly that consists of a number of part files that have unique configurations.  When I export the assembly as a STEP file, all of the parts export in their respective "default" configuration.  Judging by the posts that I've read on the topic today, SWX should export the parts in their last saved configuration.  Does this rule only apply to the top level assembly?  Is there any way to control the exported configurations for parts (or sub-assemblies)?


Prior to export:


After export:


I've exported as STEP AP203 & 214 and got the same result.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance!
