STP and STEP are used for the file extension of STEP files... but the StepUp ignores those that use .step

Untill now I have been able to work around this but some of the official part libraries now how .step in them.
Your first post, welcome to FreeCAD. :)

StepUp
? It sounds like you should submit a bug report to them since ".step" is a legitimate file extension for STEP files.... this is a lin to the STEP page on Wikipedia

Hi @cb88
this is really strange because StepUp has always checked for 'stp', 'step', 'STP', 'STEP' extension... are you sure your file is at the right location, so StepUp can find it?
Would you please post your FC full info and StepUp release version?
If you enable Report Panel in FC you will see a log when StepUp is running... would you please post also it here?

yes I missed that......, that looks bad! :)

I was spending so much time trying to work out if it was a spam post or not, not always easy to tell at first glance but we are getting better at picking them. As a matter of interest, for every one legitimate new user we are currently getting something like two new users trying to post spam or worse. I was going to say what their latest trick is, but I won't because I am trying to give the spammers as little information as possible and they could read this.
