importing STEP files automatically

In the past we have used Mechanical en STEPIN to automatically import STEP files. No we're having problems with the STEPIN command. Some objects aren't imported with STEPIN, while using the IMPORT command everything is imported. So I've contacted the support desk and they told me to use the IMPORT command because it's newer and maybe it's time to drop de STEPIN function.

The problem I'm facing to automate this progress is that the IMPORT function needs an mouse input when the conversion is done. The second problem is that other commands (like setting the view and surface shading right) have to wait till the file is converted. Does anyone know if it's possible to automate the IMPORT command.


I've found a similar topic regarding this matter, but there were no answers so I thought let's see if someone has made progress with this.
