    How to export surface body names in step file?

    Ben Lewis

      When exporting a STEP file from SolidWorks names are included with the following geometry types:

      • solid body  (name editable via "body properties")
      • face (name editable via "face properties")
      • edge (name editable via "edge properties")

      The following geometry types are not given names in the export:

      • surface bodies  (name editable via "body properties" but ignored in export)
      • vertices (no "vertex properties" to edit name)

      I have an application where I need surface body names included in the STEP file. Is there a reason why surface body names are not included? Is there a way to enable this functionality?

      Vertex names would also be nice.

      I am using SW2016.
