When i try to export an assembly to STEP file (one sheet metal + 4 bushes), only top level part is converting to step format and am missing other parts in the assembly in step format.
Thanks in advance
click option button & check your solid works settings. And click "yes" to view hidden or "suppressed " parts.
I forget to mention, no parts are suppressed while converting
If it is a assembly please save as part and try to save as step.
Save on desktop.
Try to minimize file name.
Thanks for the information, but not worked.
I may have to save the assly as part and need to save it to step file. But what is the issue in converting an assly to step file.
I found a way to convert the assembly to step file. One point i forgot to mention is the part number, Assembly part number as well as one part used in the assembly are same.
Save as the assembly to a different part number, open that assembly and convert to step file. Now all the items will get converted.
But anyone can explain what is the actual reason for this or is this the only way to convert it.
Thanks! This solved my problem. Who would have known?
The root of the problem is that Solidworks does not export lightweight components.
It is not necessary to show hidden or supressed items as these are normally hidden or supressed for a reason.
