I have a STEP file from a client, and it’s rather complicated. It’s also organized differently than I’m used to.
The hundreds of parts are seemingly joined or part of block instances. I’ve exploded those. But the real issue, is that ALL of the useful part names for their product, are listed in the “blocks” tab. But NOT in the “Layers” tab. So, when I go to export an .OBJ to use in animation, I don’t get the full number of parts exported, as individual pieces. Instead, I get a few mass groupings, and there’s nothing I can do to separate them in the animation program.
Is there any way to have all of the individual parts, or at least all of the blocks, distributed to individual layers?
