Bug Description

The nightly DMG has the 3d models in
      /Library/Application Support/kicad/packages3d/

but KISYS3DMOD is set to
      /Library/Application Support/kicad/modules/packages3d/

by default this stops any of the 3d models that are included from working without either moving the folder or changing KISYS3DMOD, this appears to be an issue on most if not all of the nightlies available

Yep, this works in the nightlies, but you need to delete old preferences files in ~/library/preferences/*kicad* (or something? can't remember details perfectly) to get it to pick up the change.
