Use our free and fast online tool to convert your STEP (STEP-File) 3D model file into a JPG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) image file ready to download. Once the model has been loaded you will be presented with a real-time 3D rendering of the model which you will be able to rotate, zoom and pan into the perfect position prior to capturing a screenshot for download.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your STEP to JPG.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your STEP file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the STEP to JPG conversion has completed, you can download your JPG file straight away.
We aim to process all STEP to JPG conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the STEP file you submit to us. The resulting JPG file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our STEP to JPG tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

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.
The JPG file format is a popular image format most commonly used for the storage of digital photographs. The format implements a lossy-compression technology that allows for high levels of file compression with little perceptible loss of image quality making it an ideal format for photographs.
This format is one of the most used formats on the internet today with its small file sizes making it ideal for website images. Although there are newer image formats that may offer higher compression and quality the JPG is still and idela format for digital photos.
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.
