I am trying to export 3D model from KiCAD and I found nice FreeCAD macro named “KiCAD stepup tools” which looks promising…
I got 3D STEP (version AP214) models on[3D Contents Central, put them next to .wrl files inside of “/usr/share/kicad/modules/packages3d/” and I changed their prefix to match .wrl file names.
Then I opened FreeCAD, started the macro, edited the configuration file “~/ksu-config.ini” and I just set the constant “prefix3D_1 = /usr/share/kicad/modules/packages3d/”. When I clicked the button “Load KiCAD board *.kicad_pcb” I get an error below:
"/home/ziga/Dropbox/workspace/programi/kicad/projects/2017-03-21 – blinky/libraries/models/s8211-46r.wrl error: reset values of scale to (xyz 1 1 1)
This is for a component that I prepared following this tutorial.
Board gets assembled, but I get the wrong orientation for three parts:
Does anyone have any sugestions about the error that I get for one part and could anyone give me an advice on how to fix part orientations.
