I love the recent enhancements with 3D model tools. But one thing I always suspect I am doing wrong somewhere in the workflow that I always have to set the Offset, Scale, and Rotation parameters in the "3D Setting" within a foorprint. Is this a chores we have to do?
My workflow is like this:
- Download a STEP 3D model file.
- Use FreeCAD to conver the file into a WRL file.
- Add the WRL file to my footprint meta data.
Almost always, "View 3D" shows my 3D model for the footprint is WAY off from the supposed position.
Tweaking the parameters inside the footprint parameter editor to change the offset, scale, or and rotations.
got to Step 4.
got to Step 5,
Stop until Step 4 shows a aligned 3D model for the footprint.
There Steps 4 through 7 takes me a lot of time to finish it.
There must be a better way to do it than my way ;-(
