When I try to convert (save as) the below shown parts in Solidworks into a STEP file, it doesn't work.
Solidworks does save the STEP files, but when re-open these files in Solidworks it hangs.
And the strange thing is that I do not see any problem with other parts.
The problem seems to be in the 3D thread. When I remove the thread from the part it all works fine!
I made the thread with a Swept Cut. When I fill in a huge pitch size, it will work also.
Opening the 'problem' STEP files into other 3D software doesn't give any problems!
Convert into parasolid works also fine.
But of course I need STEP files WITH this 3D thread, cosmetic thread is not the solution.
I use Solidworks 2014 SP1.
Any ideas on this?
