Yes, manually.  No automated way.

You could insert the cube as a "Copy of the part" and scale it to desired scale many times as you want!

Thanks for your reply. I know that, But I want to insert it as a function. So that I replicates and scales itself automatically!

You would need to write a VB macro to do this through the API if you want to automate it.

You would need to install Visual Studio and write a VB or C++ application using the documentation in the SDK Help to manipulate the Solid Edge API to automate the functions you desire.  You can find resources in the Solid Edge Developer Forum here:  http://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/Solid-Edge-Developer-Forum/bd-p/SEDeveloperForum
