the AutoCAD help specifies this procedure to import STEP files:
But the import dialogue box does not show this option. Only 3ds, sat, fxb, igs, wmf and dgn. Anyone have a good answer to this?
This issue is already reported to our development team and they are looking into this.
In AutoCAD Architecture you can only import FBX, 3DS, SAT, FBX, IGES, WMF, and DGN formats. Unfortunately, Step format is not supported. In AutoCAD and AutoCAD Mechanical you can import many more file types including STEP.
The help section discussing Step import is related to AutoCAD basic 2012 and not the AutoCAD Architecture version. Even if you select Help in AutoCAD Architecture, this particular section will redirect you to the AutoCAD 2012 help.
