Re : Inventor 2014 STEP Import - Browser names do not match file names

Hi yannick3,

 

Thanks for your comments!

 

This STEP model is a special case as its PRODUCT_NAME is null, so Inventor gives the default naming conversion such as Partxxx, and not all the STEP files have the same problem based on the behavior change, I think most STEP files work well say it is same as legacy's behavior, anyway the code needs to be stronger to handle PRODUCT_NAME = null case to let it same as legacy's behavior too because it is more meanful from customer point of view. We will log it as defect in our issue tracking system.

 

We are fixing it now and try out best to make fix available in next Inventor 2014 update or service package. Please use the workaround mentioned in above posts for the temporarily solution.

 

Again thanks all for the posting and feedback !

Problem still exists Build:222, Release: 2014 SP1 Update 3 - Date: Mon 02/10/2014

 

Problem:

 

Open .stp file, all components in assembly are named NAOU#, hardware is duplicated with new parts.  However, in the imported folder all relevant names are there.  The parts saved corredtly, but the assembly is worthless. 

 

Replace component does nothing.  Rebuilding the assembly is the only solution I could do.

Hi wiedemei ,

 

If you go to the Assemble tab Productivity panel Rename Browser Nodes button, can you use one of the optiosns to get the result you want? :
