What is STEP file?

A file with .STEP extension is among the wide range of neutral formats that are helpful in exchanging CAD geometry between varied CAD Systems. It is true that a file with .STEP extension contains 3D CAD geometry. STEP stands for Standard for the Exchange of Product Data. It is an ISO standard exchange format. With the invention of .STEP files, sharing models between users of different CAD systems is possible these days.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the STEP file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the STEP file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the STEP file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the STEP file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the STEP file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
