Re: Step file import -> step file export = file size x 3

Another reason could be this: from the OCC's own BREP format I know it saves also the internal triangulation which makes files quite larger. Maybe this applies to the STEP format, too. Hi I can report the same prob with STEP models coming from e.g. SolidWorks, Inventor Creo etc... here a link to 2 ...

Re: IDFv3 support - upgrade code

Here you have the file: 24V_non_inverting_pull_up.zip I opened the file with my new (not completed) kicad StepUp tools Macro and I found that the edge of the pcb is not closed... There is a small non coincident in the edge points that makes the kicad IDF exporter make a wrong IDF data. edges-not-cl...

Re: IDFv3 support - upgrade code

Observation 1: The stock IDF fails for the regulator, I guess it is the conversion from IDF to STP. The stock IDF fails for the regulator because the model SOT23.stp is not fused in a single part... Observation 3: Sometimes the importer, does not seem to work right for the board and holes in it. th...

Re: IDFv3 support - upgrade code

I do not know for sure why they were left out. I guess it was because they are examples and they are not needed for the library functionality. Hi Abdullah, Indeed the STEP models of the libs are useless if not linked to the ISOL.emn and ISOL.emp files the STEP models of the Idflibs are associated t...

Re: Wire fails making a hollow rectangular tube Macro

hi again,
unfortunately you are right... the trick doesn't work in a different order...
But I think you will need to create a custom function finding all edges belonging to an wire
probably that is the solution... any suggestion will be appreciate :)

thank you

Re: Wire fails making a hollow rectangular tube Macro

Hi,
thank you for your reply, but what I need is to make an extrusion in similar way in which I can do manually with solid option...
Because I'm collecting edges data from a file, I don't have a way to discriminate the connected edges...

I would need to do it by a python script...

thank you
Maurice

Re: IDFv3 support - upgrade code

hi, @abdullah , @sgrogan i revised my thought.. I think the part of STEP association is nice and would be maintained! When I tried it with its demo board the result is cool! (it is what I do for kicad, but for idf format and it was done already in 2012!) @sgrogan I would suggest to add to the stock ...

Re: STEP importer out of date?

hi @plaes, I know that will not solve the prob of previous exported files, but if you create a union of each part model, instead of group, your assemblies will be easier handled ... I create a script to export kicad boards to MCAD STEP model, and to have a sort of hierarchical assembly, I use to mod...
