Does such a beast exist? I've tried Google without much luck. I have a non-game project that would benefit from STEP/IGES import. I was able to see snippets of the STEP format and it is ridiculously dense and complicated. To add to that, complete format information can only be obtained by purchasing it from ISO.org. Granted, $38 isn't much, but no.

If this isn't the most convoluted and arcane format in existence, I don't know what is! I may just write in add on support (Python looks good for this; a la blender) and if you *need* STEP/IGES import, feel free to write one!

Agreed, the format is overcomplicated, extremely inefficient bullshit.
