Problem to export pcb to step

I tried to export pcb to .step file without success. The attached “report.txt” has been generated. I am not familiar with freeCad or Stepup yet, but plan to familiarize myself with freecad shortly.
So, any instruction to get a step file or to import pcb to free cad would be very much appreciated. I only need the pcb, packages are not neccessary.

As it currently stands FreeCad with StepUp is able to directly open a someproject.kicad_pcb file.

There is no attachment.

sorry, attached please find the filereport.txt (403 Bytes)

I would like to try freecad with step up and looked in the addon manager to download step up. But I could find step neither in workbenches nor in macros. Could you provide some more instructions please.

It’s kicadStepUpMod in workbenches.

In FreeCad select Tools | Addons mananger. Select Stepup to install. That’s pretty much it.
After that it is available in the workbench dropdown.

kicadStepUpMod. …

sure, however first it needs to be installed since it is not installed by default.

It starts with k and it’s impossible to find if someone tries to find it with s.

That’s absolutely true. This list needs to be reworked big time!!!

great. It works perfectly.

KiCad standalone STEP export should still work, I use it to export to one of my mechanical engineers with Solidworks
