How to get the bare pcb (without component) but with holes?

Hi there,

I would like to have the 3D step file of the PCB but with no component at all. Only the pcb and the holes. Do you have a clue ?


  1. My goal is to 3D print the pcb and place the component on it.
  2. I am using kicad v 6.0.7

Go to Footprint Properties (Shortcut E) > 3D Models and uncheck the “Show” flag.

You can also import the board in FreeCAD StepUp and toggle the models there.

@fox thank you it works

Is there a way to unshow all components globally instead of doing it component by component ?

@eelik, thank your solution is better than what i expected
