someone at the company made a ipt file of a tube with some bends in it.

i try to make a .step file from the ipt part.

i open the ipt file and go to export --> cad files--> and i save the ipt as a step file.

when i open the step filte there is nothing in it?

what do i do wrong?

hope someone can help me!

sorry for my bad englisch.

 

 

Seems to be invisible Solid1. I made it visible and deleted it. After that the tube came through, into STEP file.

Notice that Sketch7 is not constrained to 3DSketch1.

Your sweep profile is not constrained to your sweep path.

 

Project Geometry the endpoint of 3DSketch1 into Sketch 7 and add coincident constraint to the circles.
