Filesize EXPLODES going from PDF to IGES or STEP

I am using the trial version to see if I can compress some Solidworks files down to smaller sizes. PDF size is great, but when I try to change to IGES or STEP, the filesize increases MASSIVELY.

What am I missing here? My ultimate goal is to get several conveyor beds into 3dsmax so I can make an animated move…but NO WAY with files THAT big.
