Smart Components

Status: Duplicate

Create smart components from components that you use frequently that require the addition of associated components and features. Examples:

  • A connector with mounting screws, nuts, screw holes, and a cutout
  • A motor with bolts and mounting holes
  • A hinge with mounting screws, screw holes, and recess

Solidworks has this feature and its fantastic.

It would be amazing if Inventor had this, if I could place a part I require into an assembly and the bolts required to fix the part go inautomatically as well as the holes & or cutout required to mount the part  are created in the associated parts it is to be constrained to. 

 

Why doesn't inventor have this? I can't believe no one has requested this.

 

Thanks
