    Can't use STEP files?

    Rowan Henson

      HI all,

      ive been having problems getting any information from imported step files that i have been sent from customers for a while now,

      seems everytime i get sent them and i open them in 2010 solidworks they either have fulty faces and gaps or i just cant dimention or do anything with the model.


      the models them selves can look perfect i just cant select any points to referance from in any way?

      am i doing something wrong or is this just what step files are like?


      i can send the files if needed or do screen prints of how it looks if anyone needs more information on in.

      i have attatched it in a solidworks file that it saves as

      Cheers Rowan
