Re: what is Step AP203?
AP203 is a special type or step format which normally can be choosed during the CAD-export in th export filter. GAMBIT prefers AP203 form AP203 and AP214.

But let me tell you, that from all formats I red into GAMBIT the step-format caused the most problems. The most frequent error was the same you observed: no entities were found.

Have a look to the export protocol. Normally it already will report, that no entities were exported.

I dont know whether it is true for step but some geometry export formats do export volumes only!
