Copy/Repeat part in a product?


New member
Is there an easy way to copy a part and add back in the constraints but pointing to a new location?

Example a part is mated inside of an enclosure

it has 6 screw holes

I have the 1st screw fixed in place with the contact constraint and a coincidence constraint to the first hole in the part

Is there an easy way to copy and paste it with constraints to the other 5 holes?

I read the training guide my employer gave me and it does not really cover assembling things very well

For just 6 screws, I think you will have to constrain each one individually.

If you had many more, it might be easier to modify the part and re-define the holes with a Pattern. Then you could use the Reuse Pattern command on your assembly.
