please consider kicad stepup script
and kicad stable release ... they are more recent and had surpassed this project...
STEP AP214 and VRML models parametric generated available at:
production release is based on http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~kicad-product-committers/kicad/product/ with few differences aimed to export 3D and 3D manipulating
stable release is based on kicad 4022 stable version
kicad 3D adds the 3D realistic rendering of 3D pcb objects and board with copper layers and drill.
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
- kicad 3D adds the 3D realistic rendering of 3D pcb objects and board with copper layers and drill.
- option to export to wrl and convert to STEP 3D models with Board, drill and cut-out
for linux and mac one can download source code and build it... at the same time the kicad project is including 3D features on the new release... @ code.launchpad.net/~kicad-product-committers/kicad/product
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!
Great software !!! I think you should propose this to launchpad repository :D
