I have opened a step file received from a 3rd party and it has apparently saved as a part document
but when I attempt to open this part document it opens as the .STEP file again.
What am I doing wrong please?
The green arrow on the Part Icon in the Feature Manager Tree indicates you've got 3D Interconnect enabled. Turn it off in Settings > Import and it should behave like a regular Part file.
Thank you for the reply and yes you were right. This also has pleased my boss because he wasn't able to save parts onto our server in Germany and he's worked out this setting (which he set on my system also) has enabled his to now save the parts. Double thanks
