Manufacturers’ Data in 3D Objects, Chunk Type for General Information
3D objects can contain information about the product and its manufacturer. This data can be edited in the catalog under the chunk type for ‘General Information’.
The objects can also contain separate internet addresses for the product and the manufacturer respectively. The program differentiates between the internet address shown, and the one that is actually used as soon as the user requests further information from the pages of the manufacturer during construction. The reason for this is that the link to a product can be of any length, depending on the range of products of the supplier, and is therefore not always suitable for display in a dialog. The full addresses are shown as a tooltip in the object properties dialog. A click on the internet address automatically opens the default browser, and the page is shown if the system is connected to the internet.
