This dialog allows you to extract the 3D model from each component in the active PCB library. Each model will be saved to a separate file with a file extension that reflects the 3D model-kind.
All Generic 3D Model formats are exported (STEP, Parasolid® and SOLIDWORKS®). Altium NEXUS 3D Body objects are not exported.
The Generate 3D Model files from PCB Libraries dialog is accessed by clicking Tools » Extract 3D Models in the PCB Library editor.
If there are 3D models present in any component, each model will be saved to a separate file in the chosen location. Models can be written into the specified sub-folder of the folder that the PCB library is stored in or into the specified directory.
Specify the destination for output files - use to select the required option, then enter the folder name or full folder path name in which you want the output files to reside.
In the specified dicrectory - use to select the required option, then select () to specify the directory in which you want the output files to reside.
Overwrite existing files - if there are existing model files present in the target location, they will be automatically overwritten if this option is enabled.
