Alright, it worked! I can view the bare board. I am using the new version of the IDF files (see atttachment).

Thanks, marmni!

It gave these messages:

The file was created in IDF v3.
could not convert string to float: C2

The C2 error is fixed. It still has the DeprecationWarnings.

It's a long time ago and I'm pretty sure, someone will kill me for this... :?

Anyway: Using FreeCAD 0.18 and the newest version of FreeCAD-PCB from February 2020 (Version_for_FreeCAD_min_0.18_and_Python_min_2.7), installing the plugin according to the PDF in the plugin and after changing the paths in the propertys menu, just nothing happens, when I try to open a KiCAD file using the plugin.

Well, for some seconds there is the error message

Traceback (most recent call last): File line 1, in File "C:\Program Files\FreeCAD 0.18\Mod\PCB\PCBbrd.py", line 70, in open importBRD(filename, wersjaFormatu[0]) File "C:\Program Files\FreeCAD 0.18\Mod\PCB\PCBbrd.py", line 230, in importBRD plytkaPCB = mainPCB(wersjaF0rmatu, filename) Fi

in the bottom of FreeCAD. Is there someone around who can understand this? I don't know any python, so don't understand what could be wrong there...

Thanks a lot for some help and best regards,
Simon

Becuase you are wanting KiCAD and not Eagle, probably you may need to try kicad StepUp WB

It worked from beginning with this one, without even have to change paths, giving read/write-rights to files or something similar.

Thank you easyw-fc, really appreciate this!
