A STP file, also known as a STEP (Standard for the Exchange of Product) file, is a widely used 3D CAD (Computer-Aided Design) file format. It serves as a neutral data exchange format that allows users to share 3D models across different CAD software applications. The format was developed by ISO (International Organization for Standardization) to promote interoperability and data exchange between various CAD systems, thus enabling seamless collaboration and communication among designers, engineers, and manufacturers.
STP files store 3D geometry data, including surface and solid models, as well as information about the structure, materials, and other attributes of the design. These files use a standardized structure that represents the model in a precise and unambiguous manner, ensuring consistency and accuracy during the data transfer process. The format's broad adoption in the industry has made it a go-to choice for exchanging complex 3D models, facilitating the smooth transition of designs from one software platform to another without loss of critical information or fidelity.
Since STP files are platform-independent and vendor-neutral, they eliminate the need for converting between different proprietary formats, reducing potential errors and saving time. The versatility and comprehensiveness of the STP format have made it an essential component of modern engineering and manufacturing workflows, enabling professionals to work efficiently, streamline their processes, and bring high-quality products to market faster.

An STL file, short for Stereolithography, is a widely used file format in 3D printing and computer-aided design (CAD) applications. It serves as a standard method to represent the surface geometry of a three-dimensional object. The format was first developed by 3D Systems in 1987 and has since become a fundamental file type in the additive manufacturing industry. STL files are essential in the process of converting digital 3D models into physical objects through 3D printing technology.
STL files consist of a collection of triangular facets that approximate the shape of the 3D model. The surface of the object is divided into numerous small triangles, forming a mesh representation. Each triangle is defined by three vertices in 3D space and possesses information about its orientation and size. Since STL files store only the outer surface of the model, they are often referred to as "mesh" files or "surface" files, as they lack information about the object's internal structure or color.
When using STL files for 3D printing, slicing software processes the 3D model by dividing it into layers and creating the instructions for the 3D printer to build the object layer by layer. Despite its simplicity and widespread usage, STL files have some limitations. They do not support color or texture information, and the triangle-based representation can lead to larger file sizes and reduced accuracy compared to other file formats. Nonetheless, STL remains a vital format in the 3D printing ecosystem due to its simplicity and compatibility with a wide range of 3D printers and software.
STL Converter Capabilities
Our 3D conversion tool does not support color/material information in STL files so your file will not contain any color information.
Your STP file will be converted to a STL file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our STP 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 STP file, your final 3D model will contain geometry data only.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your STP file to upload. Your STP file will be uploaded to our servers. When the STP to STL conversion has completed, you can download your STL file straight away.
We aim to process all STP to STL 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.
