STEP to KML Conversion

This list presents valuable resources, filled with step-by-step guides and expert tips for converting STEP files to KML format using our converters. Go through them now to streamline your STEP files conversion later.


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.

KML Keyhole Markup Language File

A file format that enables you to store and share geographical data with Google Earth and Google Earth Pro. Some of the benefits and features of KML files are:

  • XML Format: KML files use XML to store point, line string, polygon, and Collada DAE model geometry, which can be easily edited and customized.
  • KML Converter: KML files can be imported and exported by our Automapki Application, which is compatible with AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD. This application allows you to convert your DWG entities, such as point, polygon, curve, mesh, 3D solid, and raster image, to KML files, and vice versa.
  • Interoperability: KML files can be viewed and manipulated by various applications and software, such as Google Earth, Google Maps, ArcGIS, QGIS, and more.
