Realistic color mode

Has KiCad the possibility to show the layout in realistic colors? Very often I just use the 3D viewer for that purpose, but most of the time, I don’t need the 3D view, 2D would be perfectly fine (and much faster).

Is there an echo in here?!! (From about 4 weeks back).


No, we don’t currently support realistic colours outside the 3D renderer.

The 2D renderers are designed to maximise comprehension rather than realism.


You can change layer colors in PCBnew by clicking with the middle mouse button on the colored squares in the layer tab view on the right.
