3D via EagleUP / Google Sketchup

IanJ:
Hi all,

I've been playing with Eagle PCB V6 since it's recent release and have to say the fix they've made to copy n paste has me interested once again.

However, I'm also playing with EagleUP / Google Sketchup and the 3D Visualization integration. Last I played with 3D was with Eagle3D/Povray.................but hmmmm, this new method is not working as i'd hoped.

Here's my board.......but as you'll see I only get the board and NO components........hmmmm?.......so just interested if anyone else has tried this.



Alex:
Have you ticked the 'no components' box?

You most likely have an issue with the directories.

EagleUP will look in the /models directory for .skp model files named after the footprints used in your PCB.

IanJ:
Hi,

Settings are all fine......but what I did find is that I had virtually no .skp files, so I downloaded a whole load and installed them. Now when I render the board I get at least something.

So I guess I'm needing a lot more .skp files.

Ian.


Alex:
That, and you might need to rename some to match the name of the particular footprint. Simarly to eagle and povray.

IanJ:
Gotcha......

PS. I also tried Povray, been a couple years since I played with it.......and I remember having to create components there.
