I've created an assembly at work in PTC Direct modelling and saved it as a step file. I now only have access to Inventor 2016 and would like to save all of the components in the assembly as single parts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
When you open the step file, could you tell me what type of file it opens as first? An ipt or an iam?
Since it opens as an iam, you should be able to save the file and all the parts of the iam will automatically be saved as ipt's also. Where you open the step file from your computer is where the ipt's will get saved to. So make sure you move the step file to where you want the iam and ipts to all save to before opening the step file.
If this doesn't work, let me know.
It opens as an iam and the box in the import option is greyed out
Normally just go to "open" and change the file type to STEP
Wait until the whole file is imported and then just save.
The files will be stored into a directory "Imported Components" in your Workspace where Inventor creates a subdirectory named with the same title as your step file.
In this directory you can find all parts and assemblies
