Opening STP Assemblies Results in Single Body

Experimenter
Experimenter

When I open STP assemblies of customer parts or CAD models of parts I am using for design, they always open as 1 part/body within an assembly. I am choosing assembly templates when prompted, but it still does not split the assembly correctly.

 

When I open these same files in SolidWorks they open as many distinct parts, as they should.

 

I have attached an example below that I downloaded.

 

Thank you.

Your step translator settings are probably set to import as a single body part. Turn that off.

That was a quick response! Cool!

That setting should really be in the options dialog IMO.
