Proteus main file updating
To use an external 3D component, you must specify that component type is contained in an external file.
In the V2008.1 version of RWIE, 3DS export is integrated, and the specific procedure specified for V2006.2 version is not necessary.
LIB Step 3: Copy and paste these files in LIBRARY folder of Proteus If you are using Proteus 7 Professional, then the library folder link will be something like this: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Labcenter Electronics\Proteus 7 Professional\LIBRARY“ If you are using Proteus 8 Professional, then the library folder link will be something like this: “C:\Program Files\Labcenter Electronics\Proteus 8 Professional\Data\LIBRARY” Step 4: Close Proteus Software and reopen it to check it. You can find that adding library to Proteus, Arduino, Eagle is same just copy and paste the library files at proper location.
I'll put here some components created for use in Proteus software : Isis for schematic drawing, Ares for PCB design.
To create the full 3D model of this 4 digits LED display, only six 3D base objects are required : - a rectangle for main body of the component - a little cylinder for a first raw of pins (the 7 pins we can see on front) - a second little cylinder for a second raw of pins (the 5 pins on the rear that we can't see on the screenshot) - a little rectangle for horizontal segments (0 degree angle) of one digit - a little rectangle for vertical segments (80 degree angle) of one digit - a little cylinder for the two decimal points DP1 and DP2.
All we have to do is to specify how duplication of these base objects have to be done, in the three space dimensions.
