However, the TailorSteel company says that the export is not correct and they have more Rhino customers with that problem. A workaround is to export via SolidWorks as that works fine. However my client doesn’t have Solid Works.
To my idea two options are possible, Or Sophia doesn’t read well this specific Step schedule, or Rhino doesn’t export well.
That last screenshot is from SolidWorks. Testing the Rhino export from your posted example produces a solid for both the AP203 and AP214 versions of STEP in SolidWorks. Therefore the problem appears to be with your tube file in the screenshot.
Hello, this is Ventura Welding, the company having the problem with the Sophie program. In a a nutshell the Sophie system fails to interpret the closed polysurfaces as solid parts.
First attachment is the Rhino step file that I’ve sent to the Sophie program, and then the Solid Works step versions that were “clean up” by Tailor Steel which can be exported into the system without a problem.
What could be the difference?
I’ve also tried exporting the parts individually without success.
Hmm, OK, I have no idea what could be going wrong then… I don’t have any other software to test STEP imports with, but the part you posted looks so simple I can’t find anything that might be faulty about it…
same problem here, I made a simple clean extrusion in Rhino, used the default settings for export, AP214 automotive design.
It seems this topic ends with no final answers so any help would be highly appreciated.
