Hi,

sometimes we need to export a geometry from ANSA to a step file.
This step file contains just surfaces.

Is there a way to export a step file with solids from ANSA?

A step file is a neutral CAD format file
You can only output surfaces, not shell or solid elements

step can contain surfaces and solids, as it seems ANSA can only export surfaces to solid.

To my mind, ANSA uses only surfaces. ANSA doesn't understand SOLID entity-only volume.
That is why it doesn't output solid entities.
