What is an STP File?

A .stp file extension contains 3D data about an object saved in the Standard for the Exchange of Product Data format, or STEP. These stp files are supported by several mechanical design programs, like Fusion 360 and TurboCAD, and are saved as text in ASCII format.

STP file types are most commonly used for transferring three-dimensional data between CAD and CAM programs, with many companies using STP files in order to design and create pricing models, and for manufacturing parts.
