Yeah, this stuff is not trivial.
This would be great!
That was an interesting video. One great point made by the author is that it takes an investment in time and effort with no real clear idea if it will be worth it after all is said is done. As can be seen by my OP, I have a whopping total of four(4) 3D models that would complete most of my KiCad projects. It is very difficult for me to decide if I personally want to make that investment with my current knowledge base.
If I thought that I could watch a 5 minute video and know enough to do it myself, I’d do it. It is just that, at this point in time, I have no idea how deep the rabbit hole is. And, speculation by others is, that particular rabbit hole is not exactly expected to end just below the surface.
There are things that I can do efficiently and quickly due to my knowledge and experience; and things that I fully expect others on this forum to be able to much faster than me. The 3D modeling is one aspect of KiCad that I can not currently do quickly; but I expect that I have enough basic experience that I could eventually muddle through it.
I thought my post also shared some sorta cool parts with the forum users. The Keystone 3034 is really great product for providing battery power for small low current devices. The HDSM-281B is a very nicely done (hint:expensive) 7-Segment Display, with two(2) decimals, with blue illumination. And, the Omron B3SE switch is really impressive in quality/value and actual tactile feel; rated for 1 million clickys if I remember right.
Thanks for everyones replies to my OP.
