RAW to STEP Conversion

Here is a list of valuable resources, filled with step-by-step instructions and expert tips for converting RAW files to STEP format with our converters. Dive in now to make your RAW files conversion easier later.


RAW POV-Ray Triangles File

A simple ASCII file format that solely stores a list of triangle vertices without any additional material or topological data. Triangle meshes are a common way of representing 3D models and shapes, using a collection of triangles to approximate the surface of the object. Here are some of the key features and benefits of RAW:

  • Simplicity and Speed: RAW is a minimal and efficient format for triangle meshes, as it only contains the essential information needed to define the shape of the object. This means that RAW files are easy to create, read, and process, without any unnecessary overhead or complexity. RAW files are also small in size, which makes them suitable for fast transmission and storage.
  • RAW File Converters: Automesher Application and Autoconverter software can read and import RAW files, thanks to the open asset import library. This allows you to convert your triangle RAW files to other file formats, such as STL, OBJ, DAE, SKP, STEP, and more.
  • Limitations and Future Support: However, the functionality to save and export to this simple triangle RAW file format is currently not supported. This means that you cannot use our RAW file converters to export RAW files from other formats. If you require this feature, please consider submitting a support request. We are always working to improve our software and add new features and functionalities.

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.
