STP export bug


Not sure if this is an import or export bug. If you open the file “Front Support.stp” it imports correctly. Now export as a stp file and re-import, the small spherical dimples have extra parts not trimmed away.

Next I tried exploding the part, delete the 2 extra surfaces then shrink all and rejoin. Export again then import the I get the extra surfaces again, partly trimmed away but still there.

I think this is an export problem because I sent the file for 3d printing and they had the same problem. I don’t need any help working around the problem, this is just a bug report.

Hi Mark- I see that, thanks. Hmm- here it looks like it might be Import since SolidWorks reads the output step file correctly- anyway, we’ll see what’s up and fix it.
