PADS Layout 9.0 and later has a 3D-Viewer built in; <View><3D View>. If you have the 3D PCB Viewer option (standard in ES, optional in LS) you can load 3D models. The limited viewer only projects the component outline along the third axis.
3D models for a lot of components are available at http://www.3dcontentcentral.com.
Great information, ya we have that option in PADS.
Thank you very much.
