Summary 0002821: IDF Import of Step Models
Revision 2018-10-17 20:17 by Kunda1
Description Hi,

I'm using IDF module to import IDF Files written by Pulsonix.

I found that working with external Step models (by footprint_models.csv)
could be better.

The attached patch addresses three issues:
1. Difficulties in matching. I removed quotes from some strings
    before using them
2. Read the step model now with Part.Shape.read() instead of using
    ImportGui.insert(). This has the advantage to work even if the Step
    Model has more than one solid/object.
3. Ability to hide/remove EMP generated models when a Step file for
    a component was loaded. Without this you end up with the Step Model
    and the EMP model overlap.

Although I tested with 0.16, the patch should apply to the current git.

Sorry I'm not a git user, and neither a Python programmer ...
