Re: Why are 3D Models Assigned to Patterns Instead Of Components?

A component is a logical representation of a device, it has properties that allow building a schematic and generating a netlist but one property a component doesn't have is pin physical position and that is needed to mate to a 3D model.

Re: Impossible to download update :(

I downloaded your link wondering what a DMG file was, MAC.
