Convert KML file

KML to STEP ......

Please find below the list of our other useful resources related to KML and STEP interoperability and exchange that could help you with the KML to STEP conversion.

KML KML Google Earth

KML (Keyhole Markup Language) file format for Google Earth and Google Earth Pro allows you to store geographical data including point, line string and polygon geometry in XML textual format. Our Automapki Application for AutoCAD, BricsCAD and ZWCAD allows you to import KML maps into DWG model space and recreate every line string, polygon and Collada DAE model geometry saved in the KML file. The longitude and latitude KML coordinates are automatically converted to your geospatial coordinate reference system defined in the DWG drawing. The Automapki Application can also export your polygon and curve DWG drawing entities to KML file format which can be processed further in Google Earth.


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 colors per assembly, but without the alpha component, therefore any transparency setting will be lost in the final STEP file.
