My client likes to export a Rhino Step file to this companies service called Sophia: https://www.247tailorsteel.com/en/sophia
This webpage mentions that they support Step AP203 format which Rhino also supports.
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.
What can we do to solve this problem?
This is my client’s test file.
Plate cutting test Step.3dm (93.3 KB)
Here’s some info on the problems:
Here is the link to the Sophie software provided by TailorSteel. This software recognizes the individual plate and tube parts, and develops the tube cut profiles from 3D to 2,5D
Attached is a screen shot of the how the Rhino step file is received by the Sophie software.
Apparently the software does not recognize closed solids in the Rhino step file.
