Convert IFC file

IFC IFC File

IFC (Industrial Foundation Classes) file extension is common for AEC (Architecture Engineering Construction) software e.g. Revit from Autodesk or SmartPlant 3D by Intergraph. IFC file format can store model geometry, measurement units, material colors with the alpha value, assembly structure with component names and generic BIM (Building Information Modeling) data. However Autoconverter, our IFC file converter, currently allows only to open and read 3D geometries from IFC files.


STP STEP File

STEP (STandardized Exchange of Product) is a very popular file format for the data exchange between different systems e.g. CAD, CAM or CAE. As the geometry data are stored in a text form, you can expect bigger file sizes when exporting triangular meshes with thousands of faces using Autoconverter software. However if your geometry defines manifold solid it will try to create optimized faceted brep represenation which should reduce final STEP file size by one third. The STEP file format supports color per assembly, but without the alpha component, therefore any transparency setting will be lost in the STEP file.
