I developed this tool following some users need in relation to download or update 3D models on a KiCad pcb board.
This tool, after a small configuration, will automatically download WRL and STEP files placing them to the relative local folder.
The nice thing is that the tool will download/update ONLY the 3D models needed by the selected kicad_pcb board, as defined in the board footprints.
This can be handful when using standard KiCad footprints, that have pre-configured 3D models.
The tool could be also improved to allow a server proxie…
No git versioning or svn support, just a simple downloader/updater for the required 3D models of a single project.
Plese note that is a very initial release (not deeply tested):
The script can be launched ATM only on win OS.
Just configure your parameters inside the ‘.bat’ file and launch
For Linux or Osx one must use the command line as for example:
python list_models.py your_kicad_3D_folder 4 your_kicad_board_full_file_path
