I would like to make a “special” 3D footprint model where the components themselves are on a PCB which then has 2 rows of headers. That should be a footprint on itself.
The PCB is a I2C MUX adapter with the TCA/PCA9548 as MUX and a few SMD components next to it. The PCB itself is shown below, the headers are missing in the picture.
Intention is to make the PCB including the headers (2 rows of 12 1-pin headers) and use it as footprint for this component.
I also just read that FreeCAD is the way to go now to create 3D models in KiCAD and there’s a FreeCAD plugin called StepUp (or something like that) that helps to create 3D models.
Is what I’m thinking of making, possible with FreeCAD + StepUp?
