SOLIDWORKS 2024 offers productivity enhancements to STEP file import. When importing an assembly, users are given the opportunity to Enable Filter.
Using this option will provide the user with a complete assembly component tree prior to importing all STEP geometry. Users can then choose desired components from the list.
With a component selected, a geometry preview can be generated.
Once satisfied, the final component can be individually imported into a single part file.
This is an excellent enhancement to improve productivity when working with large assembly file imports when only select components are needed!
