Summary0002857: Placement incorrect in exported files
DescriptionI tried to export an assembly consisting of several bodys, each one containing a box. each body was placed using the Placement option. When exporting (tested with .step and .brep imported in FreeCAD and Salome), the boxes all still were in their initial position, except for rotated boxes. So, Placement x/y/z doesn't work, but rotation about axes worked.
Steps To Reproducego to Part Design --> create new body --> create additive primitive --> change placement of primitive --> export primitive as .step/.brep file --> import file in FreeCAD --> check placement of imported file.

Has been fixed in recent months. FYI, for export you must select the body and not the primitive because the body stores the placement information.
