Also it would be nice to add a "negative height", such as for a through-hole component that is placed into the opposite side of the board. It doesn't work by just adding a negative sign to the Geometry.height attribute unfortunately.
Layer 25 is used for 3d extrusion. You need to place a closed shape on this layer. It will be extruded into a 3d body based on Geometry.Height.
To change the color of a component in 3d view:
- Open the 3D Display Control in the 3d viewer.
- Select the component you want then in the Components section click on Add selected. The selected component will be added to the list.
- On the left side click on the P or colored square and select the color you want.
A through hole component placed on the opposite side will be rendered on the opposite side. You don't need a negative height.
Hope that helps!
Hi thanks a lot, I really appreciate your help.
Ok so I'm glad I gave up looking for a way to change the colour... adding the components and double clicking on the "P" on the left just didn't occur to me...... 8^/
