How to SaveAs a STEP file

I can click on buttons to SaveAs, and then I type in a name.STEP, and get a step file.  Programming, I read that I'm supposed to just call assy.SaveAs(stepFilePath), and I do this, and I see a progress bar pop up for saving, but I don't see a STEP file created.

 

Here's the log file:

Re: How to SaveAs a STEP file

Just use the extension ".stp" instead of ".step" and it should work ;-)

Re: How to SaveAs a STEP file

I had the same problem since ST8. Very Important: use ".stp" in lowercase for the step file extension.
