Convert STEP file

STP STEP File

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 color per assembly however without the alpha component, therefore any transparency setting will be lost in the final STEP file.


IGS IGES File

IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) is the initial file format for the data exchange between different systems e.g. CAD, CAM or CAE. As the geometry data are stored in a text file format, you will get bigger file sizes when exporting triangular meshes with thousands of faces using Autoconverter software. The IGES file format supports color per assembly, but without the alpha component, therefore any transparency setting will be lost in the IGES file.
