Or drag and drop your files here to upload.
A maximum of 20 files can be uploaded at once.
Here are 3 simple steps to convert your STEP file using our fast and free STEP file converter tool.

A STEP file, which stands for Standard for the Exchange of Product model data, is a standardized file format used for representing three-dimensional (3D) models of physical objects. It is an important part of the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) industry, facilitating the seamless exchange of information between different CAD software applications. The STEP format is governed by the ISO 10303 standard, ensuring its universality and compatibility across various platforms and software systems.
STEP files are designed to be vendor-neutral, meaning they can be opened and edited by different CAD software without losing vital data or structure. This is crucial for collaborative projects, as different teams may use different CAD programs. By using STEP files, manufacturers, engineers, and designers can share complex 3D models with ease, streamlining the design and manufacturing processes and reducing errors and inconsistencies that might occur when translating between different proprietary formats.
With its ability to represent not just the 3D geometry of an object but also additional information about its materials, tolerances, and other product data, the STEP format serves as an effective means of communication in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, and electronics. Moreover, it ensures the long-term preservation of design data, enabling future access to crucial information even if specific CAD software becomes outdated or unsupported.
STEP Converter Capabilities
Our STEP converter can both convert from and to STEP files and our developers are working to improve our STEP conversion tools in future versions.Our STEP 3D Model/Mesh tool does not support any color material data contained within STEP files so the converted file will not contain any color information.
Our STEP conversion tool can convert most 3D geometry including mesh vertices and faces with no loss of detail. Any color materials contained within the 3D model file will be converted where possible.
No, due to the different methods of assigning textures to a 3D model textures are not currently supported. If your STEP model contains textures or references to external texture files, these will be ignored.
Yes! Our STEP conversion tools are 100% free to use.
No, you can convert as many files as you wish. We do not impose any conversion limits on our STEP conversion tools.
We aim to process all STEP conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files and significantly longer for some larger file formats, so please be patient.
Once your STEP file has been uploaded and we know the file format you wish to convert it to our bespoke conversion software will convert your STEP and make it available for you to download with a unique download Url.
Yes, of course it is! Your STEP, once converted is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our STEP conversion tools will run on any system with a modern web browser.
If you are having difficulty converting your STEP you can contact us and we will try to help where possible.
