Exporting DWG as STEP or IGES

How do I export a DWG file as a STEP or IGES? If I right click on the tab on the bottom and select Export, I'm only given PDF, DWG, DWT and DXF as the options.

    That’s right. While the IGES format (discontinued 26 years ago) supports 2D drawings, STEP does not so we only support these formats for 3D.

    The DWG file that I've imported into OnShape is actually a 3D drawing

    Really? We don’t support 3D DWG.
