Convert STEP to IFC File

STEP to IFC ......

The following resources are provided for your reference, focusing on the interoperability and exchange between STEP and IFC files. They are designed to assist you in the transition from STEP to IFC file.


The STEP (STandardized Exchange of Product) file format is extensively used for the exchange of 3D data across various computer systems, including CAD, CAM, and CAE. As STEP geometry data is stored in a text-based format, exporting triangular meshes with thousands or even millions of faces using Autoconverter software may lead to larger file sizes. However, if your geometry defines a manifold solid, our software will strive to create an optimized faceted BREP representation, potentially reducing the STEP file size by up to one-third. It’s crucial to note that while the STEP file format supports colors per assembly, it lacks an alpha component. Consequently, any transparency settings will not be retained in the final STEP file.


The IFC (Industrial Foundation Classes) file extension is commonly used in AEC (Architecture Engineering Construction) software, including applications like Revit from Autodesk or SmartPlant 3D by Intergraph. The IFC file format can store a wide range of information, including model geometry, measurement units, reusable geometry component instances, material colors with alpha values, assembly structure with component names, and generic BIM (Building Information Modeling) data. With our software, Autoconverter and Automesher Application, you can open and save IFC geometries with custom properties and convert them to various other 3D file formats.
