Reading a recent post by AlanBaljeu about STEP files, I was reminded of a nagging question I've had regarding exporting STEP files. I would like to know if there's some kind of special formatting that can be used in the STEP.ini file, so Solid Edge will automatically fill-in the Author information based on the username? I've experiemented on my own with various combinations of %username% or %Author%, but no success. Has anyone else been able to find a solution to this? Kinda hard to believe that it's not possible.
just tested and seen that any information about exporting a step is stored in the STEP.ini
Due to the fact, this is a pure text file from where theentries will be read in again, the only way to handle this IMHO wil be via an API solution, changing the corresponding entries just before use them.
Here You can - by automatism - change the autor field to the current user name, the time and date, the software and maybe the title info and description with info from the open document.
I don't think, that any placeholder here will take care
