Assemble Multiple leds on matrix

154 Views, 4 Replies

Guys,

 

I am assembling multiples leds on a matrix that I made.

 

Is there any way to make the assembly using constrains to place the ipt LED design on the matrix without placing one by one?

 

The constrain I am using for each led is Insert.

 

There got to be a way to insert the leds directly, like when you are placing screws and it detects all holes and places the necessary number os screws on the existing holes.

 

Any Idea will be aprecciated.

 

Thanks

Fefas,

Have you looked into patterning?

If you created the holes in the original part with a Feature Pattern you can use that same part Feature Pattern to place the LEDs in the assembly.

Thanks Scott,

 

It worked. I don't know how I haven't noticed that on the assembly I could use the patter tool.

 

Thanks
