M1.3 Source files for 3D models must be supplied

The KiCad library maintains a repository for 3D source files at

The source files used to generate 3D model data must be submitted to this repository when a user contributes 3D model data.

  • Source files of 3d models are the native files generated by the 3d modeling software (Example: fcstd for Freecad).

  • Source files alternatively are any generator scripts.

  • The source repository directory structure mirrors that of the kicad-packages-3d repository.
