Our latest 3D model is the Part Ninja electronic component testing tool. It identifies electronic components like transistors and FETs, determines the pinout, and measures basic specifications. Several SMD footprints are included so surface mount parts can be tested too.
Check out our tutorial on how to build 3D models from Cadsoft Eagle board files, as well as the tutorial on how to render life like images with Maxwell for Google SketchUp. Later this week we will feature a tutorial on how to use the open source Kerkythea to render your images.
We used open source Kerkythea rendering system to generate the rendered image above.
The models will be published in the Dangerous Prototypes 3D warehouse collection. They are also uploaded to our SVN. You can find them inside the “art” folders in the respective project folders. Check out the 3D view below. You can zoom and rotate the model. (3D Warehouse still hasn’t rendered the 3D view, we’ll update the post as soon as it does)
