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. The 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 3D exchange between different computer systems e.g. CAD, CAM or CAE. As the STEP geometry data are stored in a text form you can expect bigger file sizes when exporting triangular meshes with thousands of faces using the Autoconverter software. However if your geometry defines manifold solid it will try to create optimized faceted STEP brep representation which should reduce STEP file size by one third. The STEP file format supports color per assembly however without the alpha component, therefore any transparency setting will be lost in the final STEP file.
