Color of 3D packages are not shown in 3D pcb

Hello,

 

Sorry for writing in "Bad" English, I'm living in the Flemish speaking part of Belgium 😉

 

I created a 3D package (pushbutton) in the design environment as one "body", added "appearances" to the faces.

Different colors to the plastic parts and copper to the connection pins.

 

Attached this 3D package to the already existing footprint in the "Switch-misc" library, it just shows fine in the library editor. (lower left corner of the screen).

When I edit it from within the library editor, everything is just fine, colors are shown.

 

When I add this component to a schematic, push the pcb to the 3D pcb layout, the colors are gone and the model is shown in dark gray.

 

What am I doing wrong, any advice is welcome.

 

Thanks in advance,

Michel De Meester

@michel.de.meester , one possible reason is the board is using the old version of the 3d package. Please update the library and see what will happen. You can also check this by creating a new design, inserting the part into it, then pushing to 3d pcb.

Hello,

 

Thanks for the answer,

 

Created a new electronic design, added 2 different switches from the library.

Created a new pcb from the schematic, moved the switches to within the pcb outlines

Pushed to 3D pcb, in the push to 3D dialog window I get "package" errors.

 

Please see the attachments for further details

 

Thanks in advance,

Michel

@michel.de.meester , the warning message is a false alarm. This is a known issue and team will fix it.  Can you share the 3d package document - the one with green color?

The pushbutton including the footprint can be found here:

Only the pushbutton:

Thanks in advance,
