How to place parts using transformation matrices in an excel file


New member

Is it possible to create a part copy and move it in CATIA using a transformation matrix in excel?

Any help would be appreciated.

Long version
I am working on the design of a part which moves during usage. I measured the movements of the part and I would like to see the part in 30 measured positions in CATIA. I created an excel file containing the transformation matrices for each position. I need to see the 30 copies of the part in different positions at the same time. I couldn't find any macro which is able to do this and I have been struggling to create one by myself.

Thank you,
