Exporting a list of CAD parts as a CAD file doesn't perform as expected


Some workflows require exporting multiple CAD bodies to a single CAD file. When entering a CAD body list into the Export part, only the last item in the list is exported as a body.

Applies to:

  • CAD
  • Parasolid
  • STEP
  • Export part
  • nTop


nTop doesn't currently support exporting multiple body CAD parts. When trying to export the list of objects, the system exports the list items separately. However, each file will overwrite the previous list item, so only the final object successfully exports.


This functionality is a popular request, and we are exploring potential solutions. A workaround is to export each part separately, use your CAD software to import them into a single file, then export again.
