Re: 3D export of PCB


There is also the possibility of 3D pdf files.
Digikey now has them to click on.
I think the broad availability of the acrobat reader to view them is a
strong positive.

Subject: [Kicad-developers] 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?
