    Well, 3dsmax can import the following:
    3D Studio (*.3DS, *.PRJ)
    Adobe Illustrator (*.AI)
    LandXML / DEM / DDF (*.XML, *DEM, *.DDF)
    Autocad Drawing (*.DWG, *.DXF)
    Legacy Autocad (*.DWG)
    Autodesk FBX (*.FBX, *.DAE)
    Motion Analysis HTR File (*.HTR)
    IGES (*IGE,*.IGS,*.IGES)
    Autodesk Inventor (*.IPT, *.IAM)
    Lightscape (*.LS, *.LP, *.VW)
    Wavefront Object (*.OBJ) and Material (*.MTL)
    3D Studio Shape (*.SHP)
    StereoLitho (*.STL)
    Motion Analysis TRC File (*.TRC)
    VRML (*.WRL, *WRZ)
    VIZ Material XML (*.XML)

    You can change the STEP file in (for example) solidworks to *.WRL, *.IGS or *.STL. Then you can bring your model to 3dsmax.

    STL is the last option though, try the other 2 first and see what kind of results you get.

    good luck.
