Multiple 3D bodies to one 3D body
« on: November 09, 2018, 11:13:30 pm »
Hi all,

I want to create altium library for plug-in screw terminal block. I need 2 pin and 3 pin versions.
I have found 3d models of 2 pin versions. Is it possible to create 3 pin version out of this? (author says it is possible)
And how to do it in Altium?

Thank you very much for your answers

You don't do this in Altium, you do this in a 3D CAD program.  Fusion 360 is free for hobbyists and small businesses, and cheap otherwise, and works quite well for this sort of thing.  If you don't want to go to that much trouble, you could place two of the 2-position versions into the Altium footprint, with one position overlapping, but that would be a bit gross.
