On OS-X at least, read STEP/STP in to the free (open source) CAD Assistant (https://www.opencascade.com/content/cad-assistant) and use the floppy disk icon on left to save as ply (w/ colors) or obj (w/ mtl). Also check out the cool "Clipping plane" feature (bottom icon on left).

If you want to colorize first, use FreeCAD and http://sliptonic.com/freecad-hidden-gems-setting-colors-for-individual-faces/, save as STEP w/ color and follow instructions above.

All free & open source.

Thank you for posting this wonderful tool, I needed a STEP file converted to OBJ.

FreeCAD should do the job.
Or you could look in to freelancer professionals many on this forum.
There are also some solutions with instant conversion, but that should do an easy conversion and you should be able to do it using free tools.
In case you want to check, here are some website you can check:

You can do that by SolidWorks. It makes me happy to help you. You can send me the STEP file to take a look.
