Dear @Ryan_Krattiger ,

Thank you for great news! Regarding supporting STEP files, I’m curious, which STEP standards did you support? Have you supported graphical and semantic PMIs perhaps?


We are using OpenCascade to read STEP files which seems to support all files we tried. Coloring is supported indeed.
