Convert RAW file


RAW (POV-Ray Triangles) is a simple ASCII file format that just stores a list of triangle vertices without any further material or topological data. Each text line of the RAW file stores nine floating point numbers that represent the 3D space coordinates of the three triangle vertices. Our Automesher Application and Autoconverter RAW file converters, can read and import RAW files thanks to the open asset import library. However the saving and exporting to a simple triangle RAW file format is not yet supported. Feel free to create a support request for such a feature.


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.
