I always have the issue that on import of STEP files from different CAD systems the layer structure of the original CAD system is imported into Rhino as nested blocks.
I HATE NESTED BLOCKS
Is there any way to enforce Rhino to not import these geometries into nested blocks but on individual layers instead?
My workflow currently means that I have to manually create all these layers, name them logically and drop each item (that arrives in Rhino on a SINGLE LAYER) into each layer - it is a real PITA as you can imagine.
I am sure there is a import function somewhere I overlook to enforce using layers instead of blocks.
Here is the Rhino message upon import:
" Some assembly objects have been imported as Rhino nested block instances.
Use the Explode command to access the geometry in these objects."
