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.


OBJ (Alias Wavefront Object) is a text based file format for 3D geometry objects which is very popular and widely supported by many 3D software programs. OBJ file format is capable to store named group objects, surface materials with transparent colors or texture images, and quads or triangles as geometry primitives. However our Autoconverter software will simplify every OBJ quad primitive with two triangles as only triangular facets are supported during the files conversion. It's important to mention that due to a textual format OBJ files will be always significantly bigger than the binary files e.g. 3DS (3D Studio) or SKP (SketchUp).
