3D View - Libraries that contain the component models.Follow article
The following shows the library structure and which libraries must be enabled for the 3D View to correctly render the PCB. These images were captured from PCB Pro, but DSPCB is very similar using the appropriate folder path names.
From the "Library Manager", select the Folders tab. If the "Default" library is not enabled (greyed out), select to highlight and check the "Folder Enabled" check box.
In the lower window area you will see four supplied folders of type .pkg, these contain the 3D models and must be enabled.
Next, select the "3D View" tab.
To be able to see the available 3D component models select "All Libraries" and the list will be fully populated.
With the "Preview" checked, select any component and you will be able to see the component model and footprint symbol. The PgUp and PgDn keyboard keys can be used to move up and down the list or individual components can be examined by selecting with a left-click of the mouse.
A further useful feature is the "Report" button which can be configured to generate component model reports and their use within the libraries.
An example using the above is
For further information, the built-in Help files include many details in the Index under 3D.... and Edit 3D Package.
The Pro version has additional 3D options as covered in Help and the Pro Users Guide.
