3D models not showing when importing Tinkercad circuits for PCB design

Hi All,

 

Currently, with the students, I generate circuits on Tinkercad and send them to Fusion 360 electronics to create the PCB. So we can manufacture the PCB and build a housing around it.

 

However, recently, I found that the components are not showing the 3D models when I push the design to a PCB 3D view. I have updated the libraries multiple times, but they cannot show. 

 

Is there a fix to this, as it is a great feature for developing the housing of the PCB? I have attached some photos below of the situation where the link to the 3D model is not working. The image with the components attached is the outcome a few months ago where the components would generate.

 

Thanks for any support or ideas on fixing this

Hi @david.bartoli 

Thanks for the message. Can you confirm the version of Fusion that is installed? In Fusion, on the top-right corner click on the ? > About.

Thanks,

-Dan

Hi @david.bartoli 

The team made a change to the library. Can you please try to open your Tinkercad PCB file in Fusion and let me know if you have success.

 

Thanks,

-Dan

Thanks for the quick turnaround.

 

I updated the library, and when I pushed the PCB design to a 3D model, a few components of 3D models were shown. For other components, I had to right-click in the 2D PCB screen and click 'replace' to manually change the 3D model to be shown.

 

Ideally, these should automatically make the process for students more streamlined.

Hi @david.bartoli 

The engineering team just pushed a new library. Can you please retry to convert your Tinkercad circuit to Fusion and let us know if you have success.

Thanks,

Hi Dan, 

 

Thanks for this I just tested this and got the 3D components to show in TinkerCad. I appreciate the work you and your team have put into getting this working again. 

 

Best regards
