It appears that there are three ways to attach a part 3D model to its footprint:
- Relative path from KISYS3DMOD
- Absolute path
- Relative from project custom variable path like KIPRJMOD
My problem is that the footprint .kicad_mod file itself contains the path to its 3D model. So if I want to release a footprint and associated 3D model on GitHub, none of those options really fit. Am I missing a way to provide a path relative to the .kicad_mod file? Or anything that would work like that?
I have a .pretty GitHub repo for all of my footprints and it works really well except for 3D models.
