STEP files are a 3D file format used to store complex 3D object definitions in a standard format to facilitate data transfer between compatible 3D modelling and CAD (Computer Aided Design) applications. In addition to storing 3D object data, the STEP format can store additional information such as materials, tolerances, and other relevant data.

The STEP format was first released in the early 1990's, has become a standard for 3D object storage, and is used in automotive, electronics, and other industries. STEP files can be opened in most modern CAD applications and can be imported into many 3D modelling applications too.

The file content is ASCII text-based and conforms to the ISO-10303-21 standard. The 3D object contained within the STEP file is described using a combination of points, lines, and edges. Due to the format being ASCII text, complex objects can lead to large file sizes. In addition to large file sizes, some complex STEP files can take a long time to open within editing applications, even on a high-spec, modern computer.

A JPG file is a compressed and highly efficient image file format whose aim is to store photographic-quality images using a fraction of the storage space compared to other lossy and non-lossy image compression methods available at the time.

The compression used by JPG encoders is "lossy", meaning image colors that are not perceptible to the human eye are discarded during the compression process. The removal of this color data greatly reduces the size of the final JPG file with no discernible loss in quality.

Due to their compact and high-quality format, JPG files are one of the primary image formats used by websites, digital and phone/tablet cameras, and more. This widespread support means JPG files can be edited within most popular image editing software.
