Electronic – How to complete 3D Export PCB in Altium


I know how to export a STEP file in Altium, but is there a way to export the whole PCB, just as it is displayed in Altium's screen? I mean with the traces, vias, components, etc.

Best Answer

No there isn't a way to export that.

You only can export the 3D models included in your PCB.

There are some tricks for solve this issue but they are really hard and IMHO they don't solve the problem. You can find them in the links below

Here are some topics from Altium Design Forum (you must be registered to see them):




Update: The format Parasolid allows to export the copper features and Altium export the PCB 3D model in that format
