I want to import a step file exported from Zemax. The file includes solids and 6000 ray lines. Onshape hardly handles it in part studio, and when inserted into assembly, only solid and surfaces come up. NO lines.

    i need to import an optical design that includes 50 solids and 6000 ray lines, from zemax to Onshape, using step format.
    1. The resulted Onshape studio part is very heavy, and not workable, due to the lines created separately.
    2. when trying to insert it into an assembly, there is an option to include solids, surfaces, but not the lines.

    I found that FREECAD app. deals with it nicely by collecting all lines into a single part.
