Convert 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.

3MF 3MF File

3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) is an open source XML file format developed by the 3MF Consortium to store three dimensional triangles with additional properties e.g. color, transparency or texture coordinates for the 3D printing industry. The 3MF file format becomes a modern replacement for the original STL 3D printing file format. Autoconverter or Automesher Application our 3MF file converters can read and write to and from 3MF file format thanks to the open source lib3mf library provided by the 3MF Consortium. However currently we do not support groups hierarchy for 3MF files.
