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preservation of design data, enabling future access to crucial information even if specific CAD software becomes outdated or unsupported.

FBX (Filmbox) is a file format developed by Autodesk that is widely used in the 3D modeling and animation industry. It serves as a platform-independent, open file format that allows for the exchange of 3D data between different software applications. This interchange format is particularly popular in the fields of animation, virtual reality, and game development due to its ability to preserve complex 3D scenes, including geometry, textures, animations, and camera movements.
FBX files store 3D data in a structured manner, using a combination of binary and ASCII data. The binary data efficiently represents the geometry and other scene elements, while the ASCII data contains metadata and other scene information. This combination allows for a balance between file size and human-readable content, making it suitable for both storage and collaboration purposes.
Moreover, FBX files support a wide range of 3D software applications, including Autodesk's own products like Maya and 3ds Max, as well as other popular software like Blender and Unity. This compatibility makes FBX a versatile format for sharing 3D assets and projects across different platforms and workflows, contributing to its status as an industry-standard file format in the world of 3D content creation.
FBX Converter Capabilities
Our 3D conversion tool does not support color/material information in FBX files so your file will not contain any color information.
Your STEP file will be converted to a FBX file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our STEP 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals and relevant material information. Our tool will not attempt to transfer any color information if present in your STEP file, your final 3D model will contain geometry data only.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your STEP file to upload. Your STEP file will be uploaded to our servers. When the STEP to FBX conversion has completed, you can download your FBX file straight away.
We aim to process all STEP to FBX conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files, so please be patient.
We aim to provide the best conversion experience. Our tools are under constant review and development with new features being added every week.
