use basic views and planes on a step file import

When i import a step file it has no standard top right front views or base planes. Is there a way to automatically add these to the part. or do i have to go through the views manager and add them and create all the planes. thanks for the help

Set the config.pro option intf_in_use_template_models to yes. Parts and assemblies in the STEP file will then be created using your standard templates as defined by the config.pro options template_solidpart and template_designasm.

Have a look at the Tools tab> Import Profile Editor. Lots of control there for imports.

I also need this for a screw. If at least the program would let me place the planes around the screw as I want, that would be great. It's just amazing how complicated and annoying this software can be...
