Hi @bauler,

 

Is there a way to create automatically assembly constraints?

The closest you will get to this is Remember Assembly Constraints, where predefined positioning constraints can be saved with components.  I also found existing Enhancement Request (ER) 8838883 - "Allow automatic constraint dialog in assemblies just like sketcher", where constraint options are presented when, say, two surfaces of distinct components are selected.  Not quite the automation that you're looking for, but a little slicker than the current functionality.

 

One could argue that any time saved by automatically creating constraints will quickly be consumed by verifying and correcting actual design intent...
