[Solved] STEP Export - HEADER is missing File information

Postby Peppi » Wed Jun 19, 2019 1:52 pm

Before I export a STEP-File to inform my mechanical production company, I fill out the file information like
author:
organization:
authorization:

because it's important to define legal onership after working hours. (GEISIGES EIGENTUM)!

-- but in the HEADER Section of the STEP file under:

FILE_NAME(
/*...*/);

there isn't any information I filled out in FreeCAD v0.18.01 before. :o
At the moment I have to patch this by hand in an external editor after creating the STEP file.

More information here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_10303 ... ER_section

Thanks from Peppino

I see this under Edit->Preferences->Import-Export->Step:

Annotation 2019-06-19 163339.png
Annotation 2019-06-19 163339.png (62.96 KiB) Viewed 269 times

And this is result:

Code: Select all

ISO-10303-21;
HEADER;
FILE_DESCRIPTION(('FreeCAD Model'),'2;1');
FILE_NAME('C:/Users/aio/Desktop/test.step','2019-06-19T16:31:23',(
    'Bugs Bunny'),('Toon Town'),'Open CASCADE STEP processor 7.3',
  'FreeCAD','Unknown');
FILE_SCHEMA(('AUTOMOTIVE_DESIGN { 1 0 10303 214 1 1 1 1 }'));
ENDSEC;
