Trying to place cross dowels into multipule holes easly

Hello,

 

I am trying to place a cross dowel into multiple holes. Is there an easy way to automate this? Currently I am placing a cross dowel component and then constraining it to the hole one at a time. Quite a long process to place hundreds of them.

 

Thanks for the help!

Check out imates or Pattern Component using Feature Pattern Select.

Or kwiksert (great addin) Not free but easily worth every penny if you do this quite often.

 

You could also try the "assemble" workflow/dialog instead of the regular constraint dialog.
