CREO 6 STEP file export options - CSYS user defined FAILED

CREO 6 STEP file export options - CSYS user defined FAILED


Jumping from CREO3 to CREO6, we lost the ability to export STEP with a user defined CSYS. Sure we had seen the thread of, 'CREO 4.0 STEP file export options' and check box the Customized Export. Once OK is clicked, the pop-up window does appear with the Coordinate System selection all GRAYED OUT. Thus, there is no possible way to choose a user defined CSYS from the file.

 

Tried looking at the FILE > DATA EXCHANGE > EXPORT PROFILES > STEP > SETUP EXPORT PROFILES and nothing was found of value to toggle or activate this option.


Our engineering team is very stumped by this. It's stopped all data translation into the Metrology department and the Simulation group on ANSYS and HYPERMESH. Also, each of our customers have odd defined origins related to their vehicle setups from OE thru the Tier-1, -2, -3 levels. We cannot share data now.

 

In other words, we are sort of dead in the water at the moment with this.

Got it.  You cannot choose a coordinate system when 'annotations' are included.  Uncheck those and then you can pick a csys.
