It was suggested I make a new thread for this issue.
I’m working on a project that will make use of several daughter boards, so for ease of viewing in KiCad I export the daughter boards as a VRML in Pcbnew. I’m aware of step being the preferred format for mechanical use but I want to visualize the complete assembly with traces and silkscreens.
Based on previous threads covering the same or similar issues it was stated that 1 vrml unit = 0.1in. So you would expect in the VRML Export Options that with an Output Unit of 0.1 Inch it would have a 1:1 scale when you import the model into a footprint.
In this thread it was said to have been an issue and that it was fixed. However, either I’m doing something wrong or something else has changed since then that has caused this issue to reappear. In order for me to get a usable model I have to export with Output Units set to Inch and the XYZ scales set to 10 in the footprint 3D Settings to get the correct sizes.
