I created a 3-D model in FreeCAD for a TO220 with three leads. [The library had the five-lead version but not the three-lead version. ???] The model is in mm.
I exported both a WRL and a STEP version.
When I use the STEP version, all is fine.
When I use the WRL version, the scaling is off by ~2.5. It’s too large. Maybe by 2.54?
Since the models I see in the supplied libraries/modules/packages3d are WRLs and they seem much smaller, I’d like to use WRLs.
Did I miss something in either exporting the WRL or associating it with the component on the board?
