Re: Can we merge a change to STEP export despite code freeze?


Hi Cirilo,

I would prefer that we hold off until the master branch is open for new features. We have far more outstanding issues than I would like to see with less than 3 months to V6 release. Adding yet another new feature during the freeze only increases the potential bug surface. Feel free to get the merge request ready to go so it can be merged as soon as master is open for new features.

I made a small change to the STEP exporter:

The change implements the creation of STEP models based on IDF outlines.
This makes it possible for users to specify simple extruded models for some
parts and more complex STEP models where the size and form matter.

Although in code freeze, this only affects the (standalone) STEP exporter
and should have no impact on the main KiCad suite so I think it's safe to put
it in.

Let me know if a merge for this change would be OK and I can create
the merge request.
