3d footprints for caps all scaled wrongly…?


#1

This is weird, the 3d footprints for caps and caps only are weirdly scaled for me:

turns into:

The same problem for each and every cap footprint I look at in the viewer:

I mean, shouldn’t the 2d board footprint and the 3d one line up at least?

Is there some scale setting I have accidentally fingered on?


File errors after update
#2

The 3D models have been corrected to actual size. The old libraries scaled by 1/(2.54)


#3

Ah, inch/cm, should have noticed that proportion. Can I just download the new ones, I installed this KiCad just a few weeks ago? (noob)


#4

#5

No error here with Capacitors_THT on 4.0.7 on Ubuntu

The 3D scale factor is 1.0

edit 4.0.7 on Windows OK too


#6

Starting to wonder if I should have left them as is :stuck_out_tongue: I think this is the 5th post regarding the THT models :stuck_out_tongue:


#7

Well if they update to 4.0.7 the problem should be solved. (That’s why i requested to have the lib updated for 4.0.7)


#8

The error will go away as users update or install 4.0.7
Users of old third part libraries should know how to solve this themselves
