STEP File Format

Standardized graphic exchange format

STEP is a standardized graphic exchange file format.

Here`s an explanation from Wikipedia`s entry for ISO 10303:

ISO 10303 is an ISO standard for the computer-interpretable representation and exchange of product manufacturing information. Its official title is "Industrial automation systems and integration - Product data representation and exchange", known as "STEP" or "Standard for the Exchange of Product model data."

...STEP can be used to exchange data between CAD, Computer-aided manufacturing, Computer-aided engineering, Product Data Management/EDM and other CAx systems.

STEP is the same as STE and STP.

Nice overview on STEP. Just thought I would mention that there are three implementations of STEP thus far; STEP 203 was published in 1994, STEP 214 was initiated in 2001, and STEP 242 is based on both 203 and 214, also including the ability to handle PMI. At present only CATIA is writing to the 242 standard, but acceptance is growing. TransMagic reads STEP 242 as of January 2015.
