If I nead to insert a Part a many times in an assembly... let's say fifty times.
The only way I know is to copy past fifty times (then I place them with the constraints neaded).
The rectangle or cicular array can't be used since they a realy in different places.
But is there a fastest way to insert the Part fifty times in the assembly, instead of copy paste?
Thanks in advance!
You can use iMates for this if there is no pattern.
If you need help on that let me know.
Software in use: Inventor 2013, SolidWorks 2011
Also experience with: Solid Edge untill ST4,
If there is any sort of pattern, even 50% of the items, try use "Feature Pattern"
The part pattern features are more powerful and versatile, than the assembly pattern features.

If you just want to insert the part a many times in one assembly, and don't care much the position of placement. You could use iLogic rule or VBA Macro to make it faster. If you also care much about the position of placement, maybe you could consider the iMate.
