Hello,

I am trying to copy a part that is in my assembly drawing and then place multiple instances of that part at equally spaced distance between each other. I can copy the part but i don't know how to place the copied part at the distance i want to place it in. Any help is appriciated, thanks.

When you say assembly drawing, I assume you mean assembly model?  You copy the part and then place it and control the location with assembly constraints, then you can use a pattern to get the rest.
