3D export of PCB


Hi Folks,

 I was investigating options for exporting 3D VRML including the board and the best option I could find was to make use of libCGAL.  The catch of course is that I cannot add such a functionality within KiCAD itself because the CGAL license is incompatible (a mix of LGPL and GPL3).  If I make a stand-alone exporter which KiCAD can of course invoke via a 'system()' call, would it be possible to include the full source in the KiCAD tree with the stand-alone exporter being GPL3?
