i am exporting step files for cst software
and the material definition from solid works dont go with the file
what to do ?
is there any other recomended format for exporting to cst ?
Haven't heard of CST before, but you're right about the STEP format, it's geometry and metadata only.
What kind of program is CST?
thank you John for your answer
do you know what 3D format from solidworks do take the material definition ?
CST is a simulation software that provides accurate 3D electromagnetic EDA solutions
No, unfortunately, I don't know of any nuetral file formatts that export materials
If it helps, the SolidWorks material spec is an XML file.
You might be able to import the material information into CST on that basis.
STEP AP203 Ed2 & STEP AP214 IS protocols have a conformance class that includes material name and density but not the other properties.
STEP AP209 is designed for export to analysis packages, but SW doesn't export to it.
Right now I'm trying to figure out what editions SW can export and import, but have yet to find this info.
