Hi freind,

is there a way to get the 3d step model from altium with silkscreen,can someone help me?
i always do FILE>EXPORT>STEP 3D.

Kind regards,

See if this helps: Tools -> Legacy Tools -> Legacy 3D View -> Tools -> Export -> Enter. However, it doesn't work for every board (for some boards Altium may crash) and the 3D model is not very fancy

I would attach 28Pins 3D model generated this way, but the file is huge, 200MB. Here is at least the screenshot from DesignSpark:

You have to export it from the 3D view.

When you open your PCB in the Legacy 3D View mode, that creates *.PCB3D, but you also need to go to Tools->Export->Enter, that will create the step model.
