I'm building a project that has a PCB (printed circuit board).
I designed this using EasyEDA - Link to the project
I exported the 3D model from it. This creates an
.obj and a
.mtl file in an archive.
When I'm importing this file in blender (File -> Import -> Wavefront .obj) an object is created in the collection, but only a dot appears in the 3D viewport.
I looked at the scaling of the object (doesn't appear to be neither too small or too large).
After I was hopeless with Blender, I decided to try in Freecad.
In Freecad there seem to be two options for importing
.obj files: Wavefront .obj and Alias Mesh. When I tried importing the
.obj using Wavefront, nothing was loaded (practically no model appeared, no error was thrown). However, when I tried with Alias Mesh, the model suddenly loaded successfully.
So I'm wondering what the difference is between the two standards (?) ? More importantly, why can't blender see it? Or what am I missing?
Note, I saw this answer Why does my object file show up as a dot? and it doesn't seem to be the same problem, but correct me if I'm wrong. As I said, I tried to rescale the object.
Note, if you want to generate the file and look at it, check the project link above, then go File -> Export -> 3D obj
