Hi PUMPMANPLEE,

 

Thanks for your report !

 

I suppose you use Inventor 2013 to create model and then export it to STEP format and from your description it seems nothing is imported. I need to check if your exported STEP file is good or corrupt if you can post your files here as JD's suggestion or directly contact me via Hongyuan.Li@autodesk.com .
