Is there any way to insert multiple copies of a part in an assembly without having to enter the same mate for every part?
Or, more simply, if I have 25 dongles and 25 holes that they fit in, do I have to manually mate each dongle to each hole?
Check out the duplicate part tool that is new for ST7. It's very powerful and quick. There was a thread on it a few days ago.
Sean is right,
If you are placing parts on existing holes, patterns is the first choice.
