PCB Color Schemes in 3D view

#1 Post by SuppaTenko » 29 Dec 2021, 16:17

It will be cool to have some predefined color schemes in 3D preview. Some generic schemes for PCBs with green, red, blue, black, white mask and for mask-less DIY PCBs made with thermal transfer or photoresist. It's a bit irritating to change colors by hands every time I want to check how my project will look with different masks.
You can take JLC/PCBWay color options for reference.
And also it will be cool to have an ability to import *.obj 3d models. Sometimes I use tinkercad to make my custom models (mostly soviet components and hand-made transformers and coils). It can export models to stl and obj. Happy3D can convert it to valid *.wrl with colors, but it's not so comfortable because happy3d is glitchy, hard to find and almost no one in community knows about it.

Thank you for the requests, the first one is relative easy to implement, but *.obj format requires some investigation.
