<span class="colour" style="color: rgb(32, 33, 36);">is it possible for me to export my 3d pcb, with the components, to use in a cad program, to get fittings and mounting positions?</span>

Yes, I've just do it. Be sure to have the latest version of EasyEDA. You can export _obj_ file and import it your favorite cad (Fusion 360 worked). However, it had tried to import it in Cura and the file seems corrupted...

The procedure is very simple, just look at this screenshot. Note that the PCB project is visible in the window of EasyEDA (and not the schematic) ![screen2021-01-16 181415.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/yX9euXwy0ze4fHZTbibzaSBVbxVxEY9O3BNi24WF.png)

I have V6.4.7, build 19 Sep 2020, but I have no such option for 3D exporting in the file menu. I just checked in the download center - no new version there. How did you get the 6.4.14? I need the 3D model badly, will improve my life.

@YigalB ``` you must use the browser, the desktop version is still in version 6.4.7. ```

Thanks. I use openScad for 3D design, which can't import the easyeda 3D out file, so the 3D output is not usable for me. Yet I could export to XDF, which gave me a 2D output which I could use. Thanks!

I was able to export my design to .OBJ with the latest version of EasyEda. But the .OBJ format is of little use in engineering, since it cannot be edited with CAD programs. I use SolidWorks. I was able to open the file, but it opens with too large a scale and I Can not change it.. The proper format that EasyEDA should generate is .IGS or .STP. But this is a breakthrough. Thanks!

I agree with Picuar's opinion. I used the Autodesk inventor and had the same experience as you. The obj files cannot be edited in a 3D editing software; its not actually useful. EasyEDA is a very good program, but its difficult to place and measure parts with accurate dimensions. So this makes the design of the hardware connected to the board difficult.

Yes, I love using EasyEda. But we need 3D output as a STEP file for our engineering work. Object file is no use as it does not contain any dimensions, and cannot edit.

Hi, OBJ is not working for me. When trying to import an OBJ file from EASYEDA, my 3d cad program says:![Skärmavbild 2021-04-09 kl. 15.32.22.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/ttl6EzLe7bsYgkSx4dcDUIYM3hj15UxQI3TkDgXh.png) Not sure what this means, except that I cannot import. BN

I was able to open the OBJ file in FreeCAD, then export as STL from there. When opeing into solidworks, choose the stl file type in the open dialog and then options to import as solid body or surfaces. I'm still waiting for it to parse the file, but maybe will work??

@rechena I'm now opening the .obj in Blender (free d/l) and doing a bunch of mesh cleanup and decimation operations. Then export .stl from Blender and open in Solidwords as a surface. I can then incorporate this into a regular solidword assembly or part and align to it. Dimensions are all messed up still, but I think that can be corrected by scaling in Blender when I have another go at it.

@userSupport I am exporting the PCB design but the generated obj is wrong. I can see the components but the PCB looks like a 1mm triangle.. it looks like is not processing well the PCB itself. I tried from cloud and app with the same result. Is there a magic button to solve this?

@casale.candoit This is the result: ![Captura de pantalla 2021-05-11 a las 9.47.57.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/h2ngBbLsneC1YaoySU3DNZxF0OItWG50Lvf3NGfo.png)

IMHO, the wrong model parts. Replace most of the parts and board errors go away  ![2021-07-19_08-30-33.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/BbuY9eejCQ0Q0qDR8EGlRFbDjPoBgze2WUNoIWfa.png)

@ahmadfarisfs No, the step format is complicated.
