Volume part is considered empty by OC

Hi everybody,

attached is a STEP file of a volume geometry. If I open it with SolidWorks, everything looks fine.

OC instead thinks the geometry is empty (0 volumes, 0 surfaces).

Is this a bug in OC?

Verbose log indicates exception on translating Curve - either the definition in STEP file is invalid (the system writing invalid data might be able to read it back) or there is a bug in OCCT reader. The issue can be reported on public OCCT Bugtracker.

Consider using Open Cascade support services if this issue is urgent to you.

Thank you for the help.

It could be that the data is not so clean as needed by OCC. I processed the part with SolidWorks and then exported it as a STEP. SolidWorks can read it back.

Even so, maybe it can help to make the OCC reader more robust. I already submited a bug to the link you posted.
