Inventor hangs when importing Step files. I have tried unchecking the embed in document option with no luck. Is there anything else I can try?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You have provided almost no useful information for the purpose of diagnosing your problem.
Q1. Can you save a simple cube as STEP?
Q2. Can you then open this simple STEP file that was created by Inventor in Inventor?
Q3. Is this a new problem on this install, did it work once, or did it never work?
Q4. What version of Inventor?
Q5. All Service Packs and Updates?
"embed in document" is ONLY for the translation report and I'd hope would have NO impact on the actual import process other than where to save the text file that says it was imported,blah blah blah....
You left out the critical information in Q3 in your original post (and the related information that it works fine on small models).
You did not answer the last two questions.
Q6. System Specs?
Q7. Have you turned off quality checking and set to save parts on open.

Actually there was a bug in an earlier release where turning this off did allow the translation. I think it was fixed in a SP.
Make sure Post Processing
Check Parts during load
are turned off.
Make sure to have Save Components during Load is active.
8Gig might be too little for a file that size.
I'm not convinced that RAM will solve the problem.
Can you send me the file or post it on Autodesk 360?
