Ability to add a "group" of components to an assembly.

This is a follow up question to the abilty to "pack" the components in the Path Finder.

 

This question goes to the workflow of adding hardware stacks to an assembly.

 

I would like to pull a set/stack of components from a library and populate my assembly. Is there a way to define a group of components like a bolt+washer + another washer + nut and have this set come into the top assembly as individual components? Or an alternative would be to add the components as sub-assy and then move the components up into the main assembly? Upon adding this set could it automatically generate a group?

 

This would provide the user to quickly populate their design hardware.

There is Fastener Systems which requires the Standard Parts to be set up:
