Thanks drmacro. Would asking for IGES or OBJ files be of any benefit here over the STEP files?

Step is probably the best you can get. IGES is similar, OBJ is worse as it is a lossy tesselation format (don't know about the wavefront obj format though).
You need at least FreeCAD 0.19.23300 to edit my current sketches.
