Hello Sut,

i think that importing a stepfile in Turbogrid is not directly possbile. A friend of mine once just programmed something for this problem.

For creating a Blade in Turbogrid you have to get points out of your stepfile and save them as .crv or .txt files.
There are maybe different ways for your problem, but that is something that has worked for me pretty good.

Hope i could help.

Kind regards
John

I have complete procedur and excel macro to get the data from step/igies/parasolid file into the turbogrid format. But it is really a hard work.
