STEP to STL with Free CAD Program
November 24, 2016 08:53AM
Hi,

I have some step files to view, convert to stl and then print them in 3d printer. However, I couldn't find free CAD program for this purpose. Do you know?

FreeCad will import .step files

Fusion 360 will do this as well. It will also come in handy when you want to create your own 3d models.

I am sorry, I asked it for Linux/Ubuntu. FreeCAD has Ubuntu version. Are there other free programs?

As far as free 3D CAD software goes, there are not many choices on Ubuntu or other GNU/Linux distros.

Apart from FreeCAD, there's HeeksCAD and BRL-CAD (not sure if there's a deb package available, and prepare yourself for a shock when you see its UI!).

OpenSCAD can't import STEP files.

Apart from these, there's Onshape which is not technically running on Linux, but in a browser (but who knows on what it runs server-side?).
