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


XYZ XYZ Point Cloud File

XYZ (Point cloud data) is a file extension used for ASCII text files with the point cloud data. Each row of XYZ file contains 3D point coordinates separated by a special character, usually a TAB and optionally 3D normal vector coordinates for that point. The normal vectors for the points are optional as it is possible to generate them on the fly based on the point cloud structure. Autoconverter is our XYZ file converter which allows you to automatically reconstruct the mesh surface from the point cloud data. Autoshaper is another XYZ file converter which allows you to reconstruct a smooth NURBS surface from scattered points stored in the XYZ file. The alternative file extension for point cloud data can be either ASC or TXT.
