Get Render References (C#)

This example shows how to get the render stock (SOLIDWORKS-supplied) references for a model.

//-------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Specified part document exists.
// 2. Kitchen background scene
exists.
// 3. Open the Immediate window.
// 4. Run the macro.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Kitchen background scene is inserted in the part document.
// 2. Names of the render references are printed
//    to the Immediate window.
//
// NOTE: Because this part document is used in a SOLIDWORKS
// tutorial, do not save any changes when closing the document.
//--------------------------------------------------
