3D Models

The KiCad 3D model libraries are the individual .3dshapes directories. These 3d models are best used in combination with the official footprint libs. 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.
