I recently built a new Windows 10 64-bit PC. On the previous PC, I originally installed the stable release of KiCad, then upgraded to nightly builds. The 3D modeling “just worked”.
On the new PC, I did not install the stable release, but instead went straight to the nightly build. I followed these instructions to pull the 3d models from git.
However, when I load a 3D model, I get a dialog that says “[3D File Resolver] No such path; ensure the environment var is defined” and it gives the path to a wrl file (see image below). The path that is shown does exist. I’ve checked and double-checked, the file does in fact exist in path shown. Furthermore, if I open a command prompt and run set, I have the following environment variables defined:
KICAD_PTEMPLATES=C:\Program Files\KiCad\share\kicad\template KICAD_SYMBOL_DIR=C:\Program Files\KiCad\share\kicad\library KISYS3DMOD=C:\Program Files\KiCad\share\kicad\modules\packages3d KISYSMOD=C:\Program Files\KiCad\share\kicad\modules
And also in my DOS window:
C:\Users\matt>dir "c:\Program Files\KiCad\share\kicad\modules\packages3d\Capacitor_THT.3dshapes\CP_Radial_D10.0mm_P5.00mm.wrl" Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is 649B-51E0 Directory of c:\Program Files\KiCad\share\kicad\modules\packages3d\Capacitor_THT.3dshapes 03/17/2018 11:53 AM 102,100 CP_Radial_D10.0mm_P5.00mm.wrl 1 File(s) 102,100 bytes 0 Dir(s) 322,950,868,992 bytes free
I’m sure I’m missing something silly. This on the March 23 nightly (but it also happened with a previously nightly I was using).
Thanks for any help! (Excited to see if my new Ryzen CPU does faster raytraced renders!)
