Can it create a 3D model of a perpetual license for Eagle?

Hi GlowingGhoul,

This is actually a tool that existed well prior to the Autodesk acquisition so it does work with V7 of EAGLE.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia

It can't create a 3D model of that but it could probably create a 3D-printable model that simulates the new license.

Only in fast-degrading plastic so it must be replaced every 30 days  :-DD

Will it work with Eagle 8 licensing?

Hi technotronix,

It will, because the interface is based on a ULP and a Ruby plugin for Sketchup, not affected by any of the new changes.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
