I know the surface models exist out there (the Lightwave videos that Sandro has put together look INCREDIBLE) and there are of course Eagle files (which POVRay can turn into a rendering)...
But are there any real CAD files out there?
I have been tinkering with Altium and it's 3D engine for a while and have gotten the boards in (which includes all the masking and silk screening as well) but as I suspected the components don't have any CAD data build in.
Does anyone have a headstart on me that would be will to share? Literally, I can take any 3D file format and work with it. If they were available, I'd even take the mesh/NURBS from the lightwave stuff if it could be published under CC.
