Converting files to STEP/IGES via 3rd party software


We’ve added a translator on Workbench that allows users to download a CAD file in STEP, IGES and STL formats, regardless of the format it was uploaded in. This makes it easy to share models with partners who don’t use the same CAD system you do.

With just one click your supplier can download any of the neutral formats based on the original file you uploaded.

  1. Step 1:

    To convert a file simply click "file options" from within the Workbench viewer on the model you would like to download.

  2. Step 2:

    Select the file type you would like to download as.

  3. Step 3:

    Pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

    Would it be possible to add this functionality to community model downloads?
