We have some trouble when sending STEP files for manufacturing.
When we export STEP from Rhino 7, they aren’t properly imported into AlphaCam (a CAM software our supplier uses). Especially are boreholes not recognized as boreholes.
We found a temporary solution, in that we can import the STEP file into SpaceClaim (3rd party software), and then export them as STEP again. These STEP files can be correctly imported into AlphaCAM, and boreholes are recognized as such.
I’ve attached examples of:
- The original Rhino file.
- The Rhino STEP exports, with all possible combinations of export options. They are written into the filename.
- The SpaceClaim exported STEP files.

Is it possible to expose some more options in the STEP exporting menu, so the generated STEP files will be more like the ones from SpaceClaim?
