Here is my problem:
-I exported in Inventor 2012 file ipt. to stp.
-Open stp. file in Inventor Fusion 2012 to check and unhappy for me, there were some additions that wher not in ipt. file. (Please see attech).
If I deleted "Unstitched" and trying to save as - stp - I get empty file. If I save as dwg., I get file that I need. But I need this file in stp. format.
Hope for suggestions and help. Thanks
What exactly is your objective? If you wanted to edit an Inventor file in Fusion and output a step file, why not read the Inventor file into Fusion, do the edits and then save the file as a step file?
Anyway, it's not correct if you get an empty file on save after deleting the unstiched surface. Could you please send me the file (the ipt file (preferably), or the step output from Inventor)? udaya.gunasena at autodesk.com
Thanks for sharing your files.
I checked your model with the in-development version of Fusion (which would be released as Fusion 2013), and this issue has been resolved (i.e., the model is read in as a proper solid).
So, it seems that there is an issue with the Fusion 2012 import of step files. Although it might be possible to heal this model using the repair tools available in Fusion 2012, I am not sure if it's worth the effort.
Could you use an iges file to share with your customers? (Iges import and export seems to work fine with this model).
Thank you very much for your explanation, I realy appreciate it.
Ofcourse I can use other format of files for my customers, but honestly I have no idea what kind of software are they using. So I will just insure myself, and send to them both files type - stp. and iges.
Thanks a lot.
