Bug Description

A button to add a default 3d model might be a good addition. Right now one needs to use the add button which opens a file browser. If there is however not (yet) a model one would need to select a random model and change the name to fit the library convention.

A button that would fill out the 3d path as follows might therefore be of great help:
${KISYS3DMOD}/[lib name].3dshapes/[footprint name].wrl

Even a button that simply places an empty field or directly allows manual entry might already be of some help.

@Rene manual entry is possible in the current nightly

@shack you are correct. This means this can be either marked as invalid or fix committed.
