How to import .step file ( Connector Component ) in allegro PCB editor 16.5.
It's not currently supported. Use either DXF or IDF.
Hi we have just seen the demo video of the PCB Editor STEP Import and Export it is scheduled for release in April 2013 but the local resellers should be getting code soon to be able to introduce it to the PCB Editor customers (OrCAD and Allegro). I must say it looks fantastic and is going to be worth the wait. Cadence quite rightly have designed their own and not OEM'd a 3D pack like most of the other EDA tools do.

Have the latest hotfix for 16.6 ... 009 and have seen no documentation or notice of importing STEP files. I too saw a demo at CDN Live in March and thought it would be out soon. Anyone have anymore info on this? Or know where they've hidden it?
In reply to stump1019:
Setup - User Preferences - unsupported - enable step_unsupported_prototype then restart the tools. For videos for all the STEP stuff go to youtube\Parsyseda and search for STEP.
I stumbled upon a step folder in %CDSROOT%\share\pcb\examples which looks to be a Step workshop. I am in the examples folder all the time looking up SKILL AXL command info and noticed the step folder. Check it out, it may help.
Hope this helps, Mike Catrambone
After loading 16.6 ISR 8 look in <cdsroot>\share\pcb\examples\step for a STEP workshop.

Thank you all, your information was a great help. The process looks a little tedious, I'll give it a shot.
I am migrating from Altium to OrCAD and I usually export to .step. I see this has been extensively discussed.
I am also interested in doing the other way around:to create board outlines from .step
Is that possible in OrCAD?
