But still, no 3D models at all are shown.

I will have to assume you have built the program correctly with the support needed to work with 3D models. I don't use a Mac and I don't recognize the name of the library file you mentioned.

Just to avoid some possible basic oversight I have a couple of things for you to check. The most obvious thing is have you downloaded and installed the 3D model files? Not all footprints have model files associated with them by default so you may have to tell the program which model file you want to use. Check the file path(s) you are using in referencing the model files.

It may be something simple you have missed. I'm hoping the above might help you discover what that might be.
