Is there an easy (and free) way to convert a PCBL generated STEP file to PDF without using a CAD Tool?

A .STEP file is becoming the standard format for 3D model technology, but you need a software program to import it and print PDF. 

SolidWorks has the best PDF print option in the industry. You can open a STEP file and select "File > Save As > PDF" and there are 2 options. 
  1. Plain PDF
  2. 3D Render PDF (click and drag left mouse button to rotate 3D model)
