How to I open a STEP file?

peter_morrispeter_morris Member Posts: 43 ✭✭
I thought I was importing a step file (.rar extension), but all I get is an icon that represents the file on a page in the drawing.  What is odd is that a 3D thumbnail of the sketch is shown in the list of files and folders, but I still cant find away of seeing the actual drawing.

Any ideas gratefully received.

    I had successfully imported and uploaded - I'd failed to navigate out of the folder!  Perhaps putting you at the top of the structure could be an improvement!

    Thank you so much for the prompt reply.
