Performance has always been a top priority for us and we always seek opportunities for further optimizations of our product. STEP is one of the most widely used file formats for CAD data exchange, so we pay special attention to it. Recently we have published our STEP V2 processing engine, which showed (according to our users) 16x performance boost due to heavy usage of parallel computations.

STEP export (write)
