kicad StepUp reloaded!
Finally kicad StepUp is now implementing Hierarchy on STEP import and export.
- FC0.17 >= 11707 required
- StepUp >= 6046 required
This is possible thanks to Jean-Marie Verdun of
that worked very hard on FC STEP refactoring!
Here a recap on FC forum
When the kicad board is loaded, StepUp will create a hierarchy of pcb, top and bottom parts and top and bottom virtual (mechanical) parts.
Also when the board and parts will be exported as STEP, the file will include hierarchy information.
A side note: this release of StepUp is also much faster in loading big boards with high number of TH pads
