The Problem with Generating 3D Data

When generating "Multitools", we encountered the challenge that the user has to specify the names of the CSW mounting points, but often finds it difficult to get hold of them. Our first approach of strictly following the DIN/ISO designations does not work, because the standards contradict each other in many places, which is why our SolidTool models cannot be "standard-compliant" in this respect in the future. For this reason, we have decided that when assembling user/manufacturer STEP files to accept any anchor names that start with "CSW" and that are contained in the respective files. When using our SolidTool models in tool assemblies, we will stick to these anchor names if they are stored as part of the CAD models.
