---- convert to stp step iges igs (mac- rapid prototyping) -----


i wonder if there is any free, "easy to handle" mac based converter

to convert e.g.

 stl, dwg, dxf, 3ds, fbx, wrl, dae files


.stp .step .iges .igs files


"something like" babel3d


even a pay-per-conversion service;


i am working in cinema4d, trying to

prototype 3d files,

already succeeded in generating

.stl files via "netfabb"


some 3d printers require .igs files

and i would like to avoid spending

a lot of money for highly capable

but not necessary conversion software


Any advice/link/comment is highly appreciated,

best regards!

stl conversion to other filetypes is often a problem.


For other conversions you can use free Inventor Fusion
