3D render issues during assignment/positioning


#1

When you edit a component in PcbNew and select the 3D section. You click on the Add 3D shape to display a list of available 3D models in the library.
Selecting a model in the left list, does not show anything in the preview window on the right. To make it happen, you have to do a rename, and press enter.
When moving, rotating or re-scaling a shape (after having assigned it with the Add 3D shape button), the preview gets blank and reflects changes when pressing every other key or forcing a zoom with the mouse…
These problems seemed to be introduced in version 5.01 on OSX (I don’t remember having had this with 5.00 and definitely not with version 4).
Regards,

Would you mind reporting these issues over at the bug tracker: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad

This will help us to address them appropriately. When you do, please include the KiCad system information from Preferences->About KiCad->Copy Version Information


#3

Could you open a ticket in launchpad as @Seth_h suggests?
Could you test it with v5.00 ?
Also, I’ve heard (on other areas) some issues related with OpenGL/Vulkan and the latest OSX updates.


#4

I already did place a bug on launchpad.

I reverted to version 5.00 and everything is just working fine. Preview in assignment and preview in positioning as well.
