|KBLFRM-854||Direction-Aware Placement of Grommets||2022-11-30|
Grommets have certain points (the CableLeadThrough) that are relevant for the placement of a grommet. There are different types of grommets e.g. grommets with a y-shape (1 in, 2 outgoings) or larger ones and that reach through more than one metal plane like the ones for the door hinge (illustration below).
Up to VEC Version 1.1.3 the CableLeadThrough of a grommet was the significant point for the definition of a placement. However, this turned out to insufficient for a detailed definition, as the spatial extent of a grommet is often non-negligible. Therefore, since VEC 2.0.0 the significant point for a placement is the CableLeadThroughOutlets instead. Those can be associated with PlacementPoint and this is the point where the general concept of placements in the VEC attaches.
