    Solidworks Stops Responding When Saving an Assembly as a STEP File

    Alex Gardner

      Hi,

       

      I have an assembly file that when I try to save it as a step file, solidworks stops responding and I have to open the task manager and shut SW down. It asks about resolving components before this happens. It does this regardless of whether I click yes or no. Anyone have any answers?

          Alex,

           

          I have had problems saving as ACIS (.SAT) files, but not STEP.

           

          I would first try resolving all of the parts in the assembly before you try making the STEP file. If it still has problems, I would try saving part of the assembly, say half of it, by hiding or suppressing parts. If that works, try saving the other half. You may have one or more parts that are causing your problem. If that is so, you may be able to fix those parts.
