The Generate 3D Models from PCB Libraries dialog

Summary

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 Designer 3D Body objects are not exported. 

Access

The Generate 3D Model files from PCB Libraries dialog is accessed by clicking Tools » Extract 3D Models in the PCB Library editor.

Options/Controls

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.
