  • Altium 3D part model massive update

    Hi,
    Would like to know how to massive update 3D step files, for a board with many components, about 1000, (not practical to update one by one),
    maybe to open a new field and insert the 3D file name for each component.
    Also, this board has been converted from Orcad, so all the information should be there, but still we see gray boxs instead of 3D models.
    Thanks

    The best way would be to create a Footprint library, update the 3D model for all footprints and update the PCB from the library.

      Thanks, it is working,
      But i need to update one by one (type)
      is there a way to update all footprint types, with an additional field containing the 3D model name

          I don't think so

          As for the green highlight, I'll say it is because the 3D model is bigger than the original footprint and is causing clearance issues, check your error report

            Did you try to play with 3D models in PCB Panel? It could be possible:
