Mouser is using SamacSys for part cad files, they generate DipTrace ASC files and three different 3D images BUT:
I had to import into Component Editor, I could see the pattern was attached but no means to access it. I had to place the COMPONENT in PCB editor then Save the pattern and now it gets funky, I don't understand WHY I can't just add the pattern to an existing library, I have to name the pattern, and save it to a new library then find it and move it to my working library.
Try it mouser.com STM32G432KB

You can't add pattern to component library. But you can extract pattern from component in Pattern Editor (Pattern -> Insert from Another Library -> select component library and component).

That was entirely too easy. In Pattern Help if I would have searched on component the results shows Insert from Library! RTM reminder, it's a sticky on the monitor now
Update: Looking into the latest ST-LINK products I found STLINK-V3MOD which is a caslellated board meant to be an embedded into your project, ST used Ultra Librarian for the CAD files and included a 3D image for the product, import worked great!
