Import and position 3D STEP into footprint if model is not designed according to IPC standard?

In this article we present how to import and precisely position 3D STEP into footprint if model is not designed according to IPC standard. Also, we explain how to use Altium Designer options such as Align Face With Board, Add Snap Points From Vertices and Remove Snap Points.

Video below shows how to use options:

1. Tools->3D Body Placement->Align Face With Board

2. Tools->3D Body Placement->Add Snap Points From Vertices

3. Tools->3D Body Placement->Remove Snap Points

which are very helpfully for position model into footprint.
