We have an issue here that I have not seen mentioned, and am posting to see if anyone else has had this problem, or knows of a fix.
We have to save our assemblies and parts as STEP files to send to various vendors. What is happening, is that when the assembly is opened, it has lost all association with the parts, and when you find the part to reassociate it with the assembly, we get an internal ID error message.
What do we need to be doing differently so they will open correctly?
Thanks so much for your help.
