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.

DWG BricsCAD Drawing

Bricsys's BricsCAD is a significant player in the Computer Aided Design (CAD) software landscape. It offers a compelling alternative to other CAD software, with its ability to keep pace with the latest DWG file format. It has the following features:

  • DWG Compatibility: The ability to read and write the latest DWG file format, which is the native format of AutoCAD and supported by many other CAD applications. DWG files can store 2D and 3D geometry data, as well as project metadata, such as layers, blocks, dimensions, etc.
  • BricsCAD Plug-ins: Automesher Application and Automapki Application plug-ins for BricsCAD allow you to import and export 3D and GIS data from various external file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, SHP, KML, etc. This enhances the interoperability of BricsCAD with other design tools and platforms.
  • ObjectBRX Technology: The customization technology for BricsCAD provided by Bricsys, which we use to develop our BricsCAD plug-ins. This ensures optimal integration with the BricsCAD environment and efficient translation of your external file formats, making BricsCAD an even more powerful tool for design professionals.
