Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model STEP Files to FBX

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or STEP (STEP-File) model files to a standard FBX (Autodesk Filmbox) file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing.

To convert your STEP file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a FBX file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the STEP to FBX conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

File format information for STEP to FBX

Extension: STEP

Full Name: STEP-File

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: application/octet-stream

Format: Binary

Description

The STEP file format is a 3D format defined in 1994 and used to store 3D objects for use in Computer-aided design (CAD) applications. STEP files are text-based formatted files containing one instance per line.

Although STEP files are widely supported by most CAD applications the format does have its limitations, such as the necessity to read the complete file into memory in order to parse the contents and due to the text storage of information the files can be quite large.

STEP Notes

STEP files when imported will be converted to 3D geometry comprising vertices and faces. If the STEP file contains color information this will be converted where possible.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Mesh colors

Extension: FBX

Full Name: Autodesk Filmbox

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: application/octet-stream

Format: Text & Binary

Description

The FBX format by AutoDesk was originally developed by Kaydara in the 1990s as a means to store 2D or 3D content with motion data. It has evolved over the years to become a widely used format by 3D modelling applications such as Blender, 3D Studio Max and others due to its 3D animation capabilities.

The format is used to contain 3D models which includes vertices, faces and other 3D geometry along with animation data. The format is proprietary however there is a publicly available API to use for development purposes. The file contents can be either text or binary and work has been carried out by the Blender Foundation to document the format.
