STEP model import error

randress
Here is an error I got when attempting to import James.STEP from the following grabcad model:

https://grabcad.com/library/james-human-body-for-scale-1

(due to file size it could not be uploaded by nabble)
http://randress.com/featool/James.STEP



I suppose there are many things that can keep a STEP model from being successfully imported.  I am reporting this one just in case this particular error sheds light on a difficulty that could be easily solved (or at least pursued further).

Kind reagards,
Randal

Yes, I was meaning to eventually have a look at it. From the error I'm guessing that the model does not represent a solid shape(s) but only consists of shells and faces. I will have a look at it though.

I'd really appreciate it.  I'd like to know if there is some way I can modify it or put it through some other CAD tool to make it compatible.  No rush. I'm probably going to finish my attempt at a human model, but as good as 'James' looks, it would be nice to be able to use it.

Thanks,
Randal
