New member

"Transfer completed

Do anyone know how to solve this issue?

Maybe the STEP file is corrupt or empty? Can you open the file with any other program and see the data?

When you open the file in CATIA, is there any geometry in the tree?

The tree shows a Product (assembly), but all the parts are empty. You need to open/convert STEP files for each part, and then open the assembly.

(Why does the tree show symbols instead of the names of everything?)
