Thanks to Dr. Thomas Spindler that did the 3D code...
I just managed to give pre-builds in windows and add some tricky features to adapt the rendering to low level video cards and improving wrl importing and exporting.
source code to build for linux and osx
option to export wrl with pcb board
wrl to step conversion howto

    It sounds like it could be a wonderful package. Not useable by me though until someone crease a Mac version. I'm sure a lot of additional people would like a Linux version.

    This is the final missing step to catch up with commercial software :-). Really, really good job!
