kapricious posted a topic in Autodesk InventorNormally I create parts from scratch and produce drawings from the parts files I've created. However, this time, my work sent a STP (STEP) file which contains numerous pieces and I'm supposed to do drawings for each of the individual parts. But I can't figure out how to get the parts separated into parts files to do drawings from (and that's the only way I know how to produce drawings). It seems I can only isolate and export the various pieces in into DWG/DWF format. I tried this, but when I open them, I can't figure out how to export them to parts files or do drawings from them. I have tried googling dozens of different keywords all morning but haven't seem to come across whatever I am missing here. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance
Good Morning All, I have recently started using AutoCAD 3D Plant 2011. I am trying to create a catalogue of Valves that we use on site by getting all the 3D blocks from suppliers. A few of our suppliers are sending me STEP files. Would anyone be able to explain what programme these are from and if they can be converted to a format that can be used by AutoCAD? Thanks in advance
