I have a STEP file which I can't open it in Solidwork 2007
Does anyone know how to open it and what is it used for?
You would normally save it in STEP when you want to send it to another company that doesn't use your CAD software. We send STEP files to our sheet metal supplier because they prefer it like that.
Solidworks 2007 ????
Not Solidworks 2017 ?
yes, I only have Solidworks 2007
Can you Attach the STEP file here?
how to open a step file - YouTube
Importing STEP Files in SOLIDWORKS - YouTube
File - Open -
Find location of the STEP file you wish to open. Just above the 'Open' button there is a pull down menu, select STEP 214. You should be able to see the STEP file you want to open.
If you wish, check the import options by clicking the 'Options' button.
When ready click open.

I did it , but still can't open it.
Do you know when we use STEP file.
I'm sure it was in 2005
When you were in the 'Open' dialogue what options for file types do you have? Is STEP listed?
Yes, the file appear. But when I click it, nothing happen.
Maybe a version thing.
I have attached the file as STEP 203 version.
Thank you @Mike Lee,
May you help me to convert other attached file to STEP 203 files, please.
Hello Tran,.. attached are the files in parasolid 17 format (will open in SW2007)
Thank you so much Mike
(not Mike but)... You're welcome Tran,.. btw, Parasolid (version 17 in that export) is the Native Format for SolidWorks... and should work perfect for 2007....
fyi, the STEP imports were NOT perfect, they did show so minor errors,.. and I did NOT repair them... so, although your x_t imports may not show the error (that is, it solid with no yellow warning).. I'd suggest you run diagnostics to repair all.
I have been able to open it and convert to .Sat and Parasolid - tried older versions.
Hope these help if you still can't open STEP.
Opens fine for me.
Perhaps you can use one of these formats.
Thank you all,
But do you know when we save it in STEP format

I save a part as STEP if a client or supplier requests it.
