Ok that should be easy to do, adding to my TODO list.

Not sure in linkstage3 modified something about Qt's WebEngine?

2 Amps. Here is the link to this model and some other NEMA17's.

Cheers.
Any chance you can share the source (FreeCAD) file for it? I'd love to see how you've made it. Specially the animation and the cables.
I like to make, break & modify stuff via a soldering iron, code or both. https://ifohancroft.com

The animation is made with Gimp, the images for the animation are made with a macro by Mario52 it is called SCREEN WIKI.
Here is the link for more information: https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Macro_Screen_Wiki. You can also use FreeCADs positioning
and the feature Save picture... (Tools -> Save picture...) to create the images, this is how i made the F22 animated GIF. The wiring
is made using several sketches, all with a simple circle. The sketches are raised to different heights and moved circular around the
Z- axis. To get the solid i used the Additive loft feature from the Part design workbench. You could do the cable using the Additive helix
feature. Make a sketch containing a circle and you are almost done. Everything here is the most simple procedure. I have added the
FreeCAD *.FCStd files to my GrabCAD page: https://grabcad.com/library/nema17-x-40-1

Hi, i would like to introduce the wire bridge. It is meant to bridge traces on PCB's. Made for KiCAD
including the symbol (*.sym), footprints (*.kicad_mod), 3D- Files (*.wrml) and (*.step). The native
3D (FreeCAD) file is also included. Get it here: https://grabcad.com/library/wirebridge-for-kicad-1
The length is driven by a spreadsheet, also the insulation. The provided footprints can by replaced
by thruholes/ pads. Vrml and step files can be generated using the KiCADStepUP workbench. To do
so follow the steps below:

1. Load the "Wirebridge_Native_3D.FCStd".
2. Switch to the "KiCADStepUp" tool workbench.
(You may have to download it, go to the "Main menu -> Tools -> Addon manager").
3. Click the Spreadsheet in the "Combo View Panel".
4. Set your desired length in cell "B3".
5. Click the Part (Yellow) in the "Combo View Panel".
6. Click the "ksu Make Compound" button from the KiCADStepUpTool menu.
7. Click the created "Wirebridge_sp" in the "Combo View Panel.
8. Click the "ksu Export 3D Model" button from the KiCADStepUpTool menu.
9. Follow the KiCADStepUpTool instructions.

:idea: My tip: To get the shiny copper you will have to manually customize the *.vrml file, take the files i
provided as an example and open them with a text editor. Otherwise the color will by matt like the *.step file.
Step does not provide specular colour. Specular colour makes the stuff go blink, kind of. Changing the colour
provided by the KiCADStepUp tool will also give you the shiny surface.

I hope you will find some use with the provided files and fun creating your own variants and importing them
into KiCAD library.

(Traces on the shown PCB are for good looks :lol:. They should be on the other side of the PCB for through hole
components, however if you are using a 3018CNC for isolation milling you may check the orientation...)
