Is there a way to get either thruhole components, plated mounting holes or non-plated mounting holes to export properly in the STEP file output of PADS 3D?
IF your mounting holes are SINGLE PIN PARTS you can add an Attribute to each of them called "HOLE", leave the Attribute Value blank. The mounting hole will then show up in 3D View.
This can NOT be done for thru hole parts that have more than one pin.
It can also NOT be done for vias.
Drawing a Board Outline Cutout will also cause a hole to show up in 3D View.
If you have Altium you could but not PADS.
Yes there is now. Download VX.2.4
