I had a bit of trouble understanding it as well, but from what I picked up
it sounds like an API and library to read and write industry-standard file
formats used in CAD/CAE/CAM systems, with ability to version control those
files or at least provide meaningful diffing of these formats.

STEP was mentioned several times. Not sure if that refers to the 3D file
format that's used as a data interchange between CAD systems, or is an
acronym for something else.

Should be interesting to hear more about it.
