PCB Components appear as black flat boxes in 3D version

Hello! I am new in Fusion 360 and I have just import a Schematic and a Board File in Fusion from Eagle. The problem is, when I am pushing the 2D in 3D file, the components (a sensor and a connector) appear as black, flat boxes, without their true dimensions. Could you please help me to solve the problem? Thank you in advance!

Hi @k.tsianaka,


I hope you're doing well. Files from EAGLE may not bring the 3D package with it, so in that scenario you'll get the rectangles. If you want an accurate 3D model you'll have to copy the parts to a personal library and then assign 3D models to them. If you are in a rush, you can right click on a component and then select Add custom 3D model to quickly assign models one component at a time.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
