What is the best way to convert a step file to a png?

GrabCad creates a wonderful png whenever I upload a stp file. I want to be able to do this myself. I have been trying to do so with Maya but it's pretty cumbersome.

Is there a fast an easy way? What does GrabCad use? Thanks!!!

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 your view as png. Also check out the cool "Clipping plane" feature (bottom icon on left) which may give you some new view options.
