Hi,
I am trying to import stp file that was exported from GMSH as stp file.
Importing is good and I can see stl visualisation of the model.

The problem is when I try to mesh it using either netgen or tetgen I get an error "Only one part can be meshed". I checked GMSH for the number of solids in the file and there are only 1.

I am attaching .geo file which is GMSH file, STP file that was exported and the project folder as zip file.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards
Dharmit

Hello datsnl,

the problem is, that your step file holds more than just one part, due to the fact, that some surfaces are included mutiple times.
I attached a fixed version of your stp file.

Kind regards,
