Hello,

Is it possible to control the length of leads? 

Depending on the board thickness, there are occasions were the lead on the step model does not protrude the board. 

If this is not currently possible, would it be possible to include this in an upcoming revision?

Controlling the through-hole lead length has always been possible. 

All through-hole leads stop at the top of the PCB. 

The User enters a value on how far the lead goes through the board and out the back. 

You need to have 3D models that can handle any PCB thickness.
