I am currently running ST6 & ST9, but during my testing I found that I am unable to succesffully import some STEP files. I placed my templates into the C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST9\Template\ANSI Inch folder and I least that got me a little further. The tree structure looks good, but all of the file are 139kib (& blank). I try showing all surfaces and that does not change anything. What I'm I doing wrong?
The method of importing steps has changed from ST7 to ST9..
Im ST7 you could choose between the "old" and new beta method from what I remember in ST8 the new method was standard (as in ST9 now).
Take a look at
C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST9\Preferences\Translators\STEP.INI
Open it and change
Import Multiple Bodies As Single Part file=On
Import Multiple Bodies As Single Part file=Off
Reboot and give it a try..
Hope this solves it for you.
