Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D STEP model/CAD files to a standard STL (Standard Triangle Language) 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 uploaded to our server and converted to an STL file ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the STEP to STL conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your STEP to STL.
Our tool will save all STL files in binary format. Optionally, our tool will allow you to save to the non-standard color STL format.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your STEP file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the STEP to STL conversion has completed, you can download your STL file straight away.
We aim to process all STEP to STL 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 STL file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our STEP to STL tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

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.
The standard STL file format does not support colored faces or vertices or texture information. The STL file generated by the tool will contain only raw mesh/triangle data by default which is perfect for 3D printing.
The tool also has an option to save the file to one of the non-standard formats that support colored faces such as VisCAM and SolidView which is perfect if you want to further process the STL in software which supports these formats.
