Question .step import not completing

Powertranslator for Maya 2012sap, Win7 64bit 16Gig Ram, (direct connect is always OFF). nPower Version 04.10

When i try to import a .step file via Powertrans (DConn off) the import starts, the import status bar shows up, but in the end nothing gets imported. Statusline outputs: Result://(datapath of file). Workspace and Outliner stay empty.

The same file gets imported via Maya direct connect with no problems, so its not corrupted and seems to be a valid .step file. The data is quite heavy, is there a Limitation due to the complexity of the CAD Model?

Any Idea?

Hi Peter,

There aren't any phyiscal size limits (just the amount of memory that you have). That's a very strange case. Could you send us the file for debugging?

Hi Dave,

thanks for your reply. Maybe you can PM me where to send the file to (sensitive data).

Thanks and regards,

P.S. I forgot to mention that right now i'm evaluating your SW using the 30 day Demo. As far as i understand it should work exactly as the full version, right?

Hey Peter,

The import quality will be the same for both demo and release. You can email me directly if you want to send the file so that we can see what is wrong.

bumping this thread.

was this ever resolved? Just bought the nPower translators for Maya.
installed, registered, direct connect off. i'm getting nothing. i've tried some ten different
STEP and IGES files. nothing except some nPower-shaders. import-progress-bar flickers for a millisecond but no data.

thing is, i tried the evaluation version a while ago on my old machine (same files even) and it worked great so I don't know what's going on.
I'm on a Mac Pro 2013 now.

some help needed thanks!

best /Sam
