Hello,

File > Import > STEP

New Entity > Explode, check Sub-Shape Type = Shell and validate. It should extract the shell from the solid.

Best regards,

William

Hello William,
 
Can Salome set the thickness of the shell? If yes, how to set the thickness?
 
thank you for your answer.

Hi Allan,

You can thicken the shell through New Entity > Generation > Thickness.

All the best

William
