Transparent solder mask

I don't know if this is done intentionally. Soldermask on 3D views are transparent making copper visible it can easily be changed by changing the appearance of body for soldermasks.

Here are two SS for comparison First one default FR4 transparrent when appearance changed to different color, copper pads are also covered with soldermask.

Boards pushed from Eagle does not do this because soldermask and pads vias are all  pushed as canvas.

Hi @rbkyorem,

I hope you're doing well. This change is intentional, the default 3D PCB creation in Fusion360 converts the copper into actual geometry, which can be super useful if you have access to a milling machine. If you want the nicer picture with the Canvas option then you can choose to push to a 3D PCB with canvas.

I hope this helps clarify the situation.

Best Regards,
