Trying to convert a STEP file to assembly.

Using import as an assembly. it created a single part with 2 bodies.  In the Synch tree it lists BodyFeature1 and PartCopy1.  One of these was marked as construction geometry so i convered it to design geometry.

 

Problem 1: I am unable to select both bodies.  I can select either individually, but if I choose both, I get "Exception: Specified cast is not valid".  

 

Problem 2: I want to click on the Multi-body Publish command but it's disabled.

Could you upload the STEP so I can see what kind of problem you have?

I called phone support, and the resolution was to switch to using the Beta STEP translator.

I was not aware of the Beta STEP, tried it and it works much better.
