Version 19 Software Released!
In 1994, the first STEP CAD interfaces changed how companies did
business by exchanging full-fidelity brep solid geometry. In 2021,
the next generation of STEP is producing intelligent product models
with full associativity, which will again open new opportunities for
Our STEP Tools development solutions have powered commercial CAD,
analysis, and visualization systems since the very start of this
journey. Our latest release has the very latest for sematic
tolerances, new geometry, STEP-NC manufacturing, and building
information models, packaged in the fastest and most reliable
libraries for making, using, and manipulating STEP, STEP-NC, IFC, and
Meshing and Viewing a Cruise Ship Assembly.

Version 19 of ST-Developer adds:
- Latest STEP models, with 400 new definitions for semantic
tolerances, additive setup, tesselated models and point cloud data, as
well as UUIDs, references, and UTF-8 strings introduced by the third
edition of the STEP file format.
- Latest IFC models, with IFC4x3 definitions for with continued
automatic migration of older data through IFC4 and IFC 2x3.
- Modernized OpenGL graphics for very large STEP and IFC product
models. View models an order of magnitude larger than the last
release, up to multi-gigabyte sizes, with responsive motion, quick
picking, transparency, and traceability across multiple reused
- Faster simpler meshing, particularly for splines. More types of
geometry, offset surfaces, IFC4 trimmed breps and all swept profile
- New assembly and shape indexes. Simpler and easier to find
extensions for tolerance, assemblies, dates, units, placements, and
- New Apple M1 platform, Visual Studio 2019, GCC-7 on Linux, and the
latest Xcode environment on Mac.
