It sounds like your ideal PCB package is in fact a generic 3D modeller
like Solidworks, Solidedge, Spaceclaim or something of that ilk.

You can model anything with that (including material properties). I
won't expect you can make everything you model, nor that it will help
you match up the netlist - but whatever... it is flexible.
