How can I save a geometry as .step file, created in gmsh using a .geo script? I can do so by using the export function in the gui but I can't find the related command to do so from a geo script directly.
I did as decribed http://onelab.info/pipermail/gmsh/2018/012230.html and specified the correct geometry kernel. I also searched the gmsh manual https://gmsh.info/doc/texinfo/gmsh.html but haven't found the correct command there.

I think, this should work:


gmsh fileName.geo -1 -format stp

Indeed it's that easy. As I wanted to save directly from within the .geo script I added the following line at the end:
Code:
Save "my_stepfile.step";
