Re: [FEATURE] Array 3D models

The second issue is that I imagine most users who export to step files

application such as FreeCAD.

That is a good point. I haven't exported a board in a while. Last time I did I only got the board without any of the 3D models I had added and could see in the 3D viewer. One option here would be to convert the array based models to a single 3D model on the fly during the export process.
