lately I designed a structure in rhino which I will send to a company for a 3D stainless steel printing. They have asked me for a .step file and x_t file of my drawing. I exported to STEP and sended to them.
They followed up with issues:
“I opened the .stp file with Solidworks and I even face many problems -> see below. And some elements are missing.
Could you please check your design again and make sure that you have only one structure without space between the elements.
Could you please send then a .step again and a x_t file.”
As you can see in the picture that they have forwarded to me they get a broken modell with missing elements + they have asked me to have a single element.
Does anybody have and Idea of who can I get this export right? and who can I connect all the elements in my structure, and making them a single element?
In attachment you will find my 3dm file, the picture of the company with the issues and a screenshot of mine with who should look like the geometry.
Thank you all for your time
