Hi Akira, > I am trying to convert a STEP file to GDML using FASTRAD.

"BGO_typeB_30mm" is automatically converted to > "Element Step 0". I attache an input STEP file (I changed the suffix > from STEP to txt so that I can upload it). I suggest you to report this issue to the FASTRAD developers, there's no better way! In any case, as far as I understand, you can avoid all these extra steps for associating materials, by doing this directly in FASTRAD, which should also generate the proper GDML translation. Cheers, Gabriele
