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.
