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preservation of design data, enabling future access to crucial information even if specific CAD software becomes outdated or unsupported.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

An OBJ file is a widely used file format in 3D computer graphics that serves as a standard representation for 3D models. It stands for "Object" and was originally developed by Wavefront Technologies. OBJ files store geometric data, such as vertex positions, normals, texture coordinates, and face information, describing the surface of a 3D object. This data is presented in plain text, making OBJ files human-readable and easy to exchange between various 3D modeling and rendering software.
The structure of an OBJ file is based on vertices (points in 3D space), which form the building blocks of the 3D model's shape. These vertices are organized into faces, typically triangles or quads, representing the surfaces of the object. Alongside the geometric data, OBJ files can also include material information, enabling the application of textures and shaders to the 3D model, providing it with color, reflectivity, and other visual properties.
Due to its simplicity and compatibility across different software platforms, the OBJ file format has become a popular choice for sharing 3D models. However, being a relatively basic format, OBJ files may not support complex features found in more advanced formats like animation data or high-level shader definitions. Despite this limitation, OBJ remains a widely adopted format in various industries, including gaming, animation, virtual reality, and 3D printing.
Your STEP file will be converted to a OBJ 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 OBJ conversion has completed, you can download your OBJ file straight away.
We aim to process all STEP to OBJ 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.
