I would like to associate a 3D model with a read-only library part that does not currently have a 3D model.
Must I save the footprint into my own custom library to associate the model?
I’ve found that I can associate the 3D model with the part in the PCB editor but I must do them one at a time and I have many of these parts.
I feel it would be nice if 3d models were treated more like the association between symbols and footprints where they were assigned (or could be assigned) on a per project basis.
Is my only recourse to clone the read-only libraries or is there a way to make the association?
