Part Configurations

Say I have a small rectangular part that appears once in a model.

 

Can I design the original part so it's fabricated in a strip of 10 parts - then place a "configuration" of the part in a model that only shows 1 of the 10 parts?

 

SW is my first tool - but I'm (happily) using Inventor at the moment. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.

In Inventor they call them factory and iparts.  Take a look at the attached link.

But yes it can be done.
