Importing STEP file
After an epic catalog search, I found the exact part I needed - a stainless push-type bulkhead elbow for 14mm hard tube and lo, a STEP and IGES CAD files are available for download. So, I downloaded the ZIP file, extracted the STEP file then imported it into Onshape. As expected, it appeared as a part tab which opened to reveal a beautiful CAD model of the elbow. I'm feeling good. Now to import it into my big assembly.
Now the strange thing. Although the part appears as a tab, it does not appear in the insert dialog box - it simply isn't there. I went back and imported the IGES file but the same thing - it isn't in the insert dialog box. What gives?
