3D Models

The KiCad 3D model libraries are the individual .3dshapes directories. Each directory directory contains multiple 3D model files, with the following supported file formats.


WRL files provide support for material properties, allowing superior 3D rendering within KiCad


STEP files are required for integration with MCAD software.

Updating via Git

Users who wish to keep 3D model libraries up to date can track the [https://github.com/kicad/kicad-packages3d] GitHub repository.


Users who wish to contribute to the 3D model libraries can submit a pull request at [https://github.com/kicad/kicad-packages-3d].
