I used the nightly “lite” version to install on top of my last version and the 3D models went away. I noticed that in my path to C:\Program Files (x86)\KiCad\5.99\share\kicad, there was no 3dmodels folder. I downloaded the zip from GitHub and it was HUGE! I don’t remember doing this before. Did the lite version remove a folder? Is what is included in the 5.99 download a subset of the full number of files in GitHub? It doesn’t look like anything has been changed on GitHub for 5 months.
Also noticed that if I run ERC in the schematic, it now can’t find my symbols. Example, “symbol ‘1N4004’ not found in symbol library ‘diode’” which I believe is another folder missing from …/5.99/share/kicad. Looks like I have no “modules” folder by looking at the paths.
