FBX to STEP Conversion

This list offers valuable resources, filled with step-by-step instructions and expert tips for converting FBX files to STEP format using our converters. Investigate them now to facilitate your FBX files conversion later.


FBX Filmbox File

A proprietary file format that was originally created by Kaydara and is now owned by Autodesk, a leading company in 3D software products. Some of the benefits and features of FBX files are:

  • Transparent Colors and Texture Images: FBX files can store transparent colors and texture images, providing a rich and detailed visual experience.
  • Reusable Geometry Components: The FBX format allows for the storage of reusable geometry components, enhancing efficiency and consistency across models.
  • Assembly Structures: FBX supports the storage of assembly structures with hierarchical relationships between objects, enabling complex and detailed 3D modeling.
  • Model Animation Data: FBX can even store model animation data, although this feature is not currently supported by all software.
  • FBX File Converters: You can use our Autoconverter and Autoshaper software to easily process and convert your FBX files. They utilize the official FBX SDK from Autodesk that ensures compatibility and efficiency.

STP STandardized Exchange of Product File

A file format used for the exchange of 3D data across various computer systems, including CAD, CAM, and CAE, in a standardized format. Some of the benefits and features of STEP files are:

  • Compatibility: STEP is widely supported by many software applications and platforms, making it easy to share and collaborate on 3D models across different domains and industries.
  • Accuracy: STEP preserves the exact shape and dimensions of 3D models, unlike some other mesh formats (SKP, OBJ, or STL) that may introduce errors or distortions during conversion.
  • STEP Files Converter: STEP files can be very large, especially when they contain complex or high-resolution 3D models. One way to reduce the file size is to use Autoconverter software, which can utilize the faceted BREP representation, potentially saving up to one-third of the file size.
  • Materials: STEP file format supports colors per assembly. However, it lacks an alpha component. This means that any transparency effects applied to 3D models will not be visible or preserved in the STEP files.
