With beautification in mind I decided to attach 3D-STEP models to elements on my PCB.
One of them is a connector from Samtec. They do provide a STEP models for a download, but it was immediately suspicious to me, that the preview had this weird disc over the connector. At that moment I thought it was some kind of glitch and proceeded downloading STEP model regardless.
Attaching the downloaded STEP model I was surprised by this disc again. Turns out, it was also exported into STEP model along with the connector. Unfortunately, this serves bad for the purpose of "beautification" :)
- What is the purpose of this disk?
- Is there any way to download a STEP model of Samtec connector without this disk?
For a reference, the connector is QSH-030-01-F-D-A-K
