Respected:

I have huge ammount of step files (over a 1000 buyed to seller) which I need to convert (or import) as a parts or assembly. The only which I know is following the path File>import>step 214 etc... This way provide me to import only one step file and convert to a solid body. My question is, can I import somehow, all my step files in one way simmilar to procedure for importing one step, or, do you offer that kind of service or favor?

Reason of my question is decreasing time for converting.

Thanks for your time.

I don't understand. If you mean to get my part from step file using File>Open - path, it is not feasible. Can you tell me more, please?

Ok.

Open archive.

on your C:\ create folder C:\tmp\stptest and put into this folder all samples stp-files from my archive.

 

Run NX

 

Ctrl+U, select my DLL. Thats all, for all stp files will be created prt-files.

1. In your UGII create folder STP_POSTPROCESSOR

2. Put into this folder all yours stp-files (1000 or 1001.....)

3. Put into this folder new version of DLL

4. Ctrl+U, run DLL

 

ALL yours stp-files will be translated to stp.prt-files.

Thank you man but it don`t work. I followed your instruction and load your DLL (older and new version) and on older version I have some kind of proper loading ( see pic. previous DLL loading) but NX parts missing. And your new DLL ( pic. new DLL). I also writted a word document named "My steps for converting  multi stp files" so if you have a few minuts please read. Once again, thanks anyway!

What are you trying to end up with?

- all solids in one part?

- each STEP file's solids in a separate part?

- An assembly?
