What is a STEP file?
STEP was developed to solve the age-old problem of sharing 3D model file data between different CAD systems. STEP, which stands for Standard for the Exchange of Product Data, is essentially an exchange format, much like PDF, that can be recognized by various programs, thereby making it easier to send data to other CAD users.
STEP is […]
3D photos, Virtual Reality worlds and designs for feeding 3D printers are showing up in many diverse places. To document share and review 3D models needs a generic universally accepted format such as PDF. Actually, PDF already supports 3D. Once a 3D model is converted to 3D PDF, it can be distributed and viewed with any 3D enabled PDF viewer.
