Altium Designer Import - 3D Models
SOLIDWORKS Forums
7 months ago

Hi Guys,

 

In the current version of SWPCB I can't import the original PCBDOC file coming out from Altium Designer 17.x due to the file type not being recognized. This is however not a problem, saving in 5.0 version is easy. But... When exporting the 3D Step models they become extruded objects when opened/imported into SWPCB.

Some of the 3D Models look kind of strange also, they go straight through the PCB. (Stand-off height issues(?))

Hi Markus,

 

I think that you need to have the library with 3D Models linked with their components.

(SchLib + PcbLib -> LibPkg)

Perhaps, it's false, I don't try that, but I should.

 

Regards,

Carole
