Need help copying a solid body multiple times (attached a picture of similar case)

Hello Everyone!

 

This is my first post on this community. I am using NX 11.

Let me just first explain what exactly I am trying to do.

I have some group of curves, and a few points on those curves. I have created a separate solid body (my tool) which I want to copy at every single point (& end points of the curves as well).

Now the problem is, every time i have to do this, I use the move object command and copy the solid, specifying the base point and the new point, where I need the object to be placed. At the moment, I'm repeating this process like 40-60 times.

Does anyone have a more efficient way of copying the object.

I'm not much experienced with NX, so if someone's got a better way for this, please help me.

 

Thanks.

EDIT: I have an attached a similar case. The tool here (in the upper left section) has to be copied to every single point (end points of line and arcs) on the projected curve.

Hi Paras,

 

'Pattern Feature' command with Pattern Definition > Layout 'General' fits close to your requirement.

If the points and curves are placed as a pattern then Layout 'Reference' is the way to go !

Hi @SanthostInd

You literally saved me hours of work. I was looking at the pattern command earlier, but I might've possibly skipped this particular option.
Thank you very much!
