I keep creating new 3D models for KiCad. This time I made some 9mm potentiometers I use in all my projects.
ALPHA / ALPS 9mm single turn Potentiometers:

I’m updating all my current designs in order to incorporate WRL/STEP 3D models. They provide a convenient way to check mechanical issues, especially with cases and front panels.
The Bourns 3296 3/8″ Trimpots are missing from the official KiCad 3D Library, so I decided to create my own.
It’s also a useful way to learn how to use FreeCAD and Github.
I’m also using kicad StepUp for model conversion, alignement and scaling.
