I’ve sent a model of an assembly to a supplier. They use Solid Edge. We’ve tried STEP and Parasolid x_t which both seem to work ok wrt bringing in the solids. There are several stock parts and small fittings in the model which I have created a) on their own layers, with each layer carrying the part name & product code, and b) named each part in Properties. Unfortunately, SE doesn’t seem to be able to pull either of these text attributes through its import process. I know the data is there (in the STEP format, at least) as I’ve successfully sent similar models to other suppliers that use Catia and Solidworks.
Is there a setting in Rhino or Solid Edge that I’m missing that will make this work?
