Making an assembly to a step-file the right way?

Hi!

I´m new to step-files. If I make a step file of an assembly, do I also have to make all the separate parts to step files individually before making the asm to step?

I did a step file of the asm and opened it but i looks like the separate parts still are SW-files. Will other people be able to open the asm step file in an other software if I do like this?

Hi Josef I work with IV and it should be the same with SW
but when you have finished your model with all parts and assy done then it is just a case of saving the file to a STEP file.....
The only problem with STEP it will not keep the constraints when open in another software platform.
