No incorporate components placed on the board in KiCAD 3D view
« on: November 20, 2017, 04:55:58 AM »
I'm just starting to work with KiCAD. One of the video tutorial shows that 3D view should incorporate components placed on the board:



However in my case I can see only the board with pads:



Looks like I need to tune up my KiCAD installation (I'm using Windows 7, KiCAD version 4.0.0).

Could anyone give me any advize for that?

EDIT 1

As @Robert Stiffler mentioned I verified if the component 3D view is enabled. As I can treat the follwoing screen - everything should be OK. However the option name is differ from suggested ("Show component 3D shape" VS "Show 3D footprints"). So it is possible that I picked the wrong setting.

And the libraries are mostly standard.
