Re: FW: Is there a way to compare a step file to a part file.
My 2 cents. J
In assembly with two parts paint one part in magenta and second one in blue. In wireframe mode you can see the difference pretty clear. Of course I am not talking about the difference in .001 of millimeter. You can also compare the mass properties of each part ( mass, volume, center of gravity, etc.)
