Export Step Files for NX10 Not Working

Valued Contributor
Valued Contributor

In NX through Teamcenter it runs the program to export, but then if I try to open the step file, I get an error message attached. Here is the text from the export procedure in case there is something in here thats useful.

If the export completed I suspect your step file is ok. I assume you're trying to open the step file back into the same NX version (NX10). Does your NX log file indicate that there are any problems (at the end of the log)? Do you have any other products that you can import the step file into to test its validity?

No I am only running NX 10. A friend was able to load it on his machine just fine but for some reason I get the error

Is your friend also running NX10? Are you both using the same version of NX10? Is he running Teamcenter managed NX? Does your log file capture an error?

Yes both are running 10.0.3 and yes he is also using Teamcenter NX. He can export the files but when I export them it creates a broken file that I can't open. are there any settings I should be looking at?

Just to confirm:
1) Can the other user open STEP files that YOU are exporting?
2) Does your NX log file capture an error?

When the other guy creates the file on his computer, I am able to open that file on my computer.

He was not able to open any files I have exported.

Also before when I was running 8.5, it was working fine. This started after I upgraded to NX 10

That is strange.  Possibly a bad install - try reinstalling NX10?

You might want to consider calling the NX CAD GTAC support group.  As I mentioned earlier, your translation log does not show any errors, which is usually a good sign.  I would be curious to know what your NX log reports when you attempt to open the STEP file that you created (when the error is raised) - but you seem to be avoiding that question Smiley Happy
