Inserting Several Components in Succession

You can select several components at a time and click in succession to place them in different locations.

To insert several components in succession:

  1. Do one of the following to open the PropertyManager:
    • Create a new assembly document by clicking New (Standard toolbar) or File > New.
    • In an existing assembly, click Insert Components (Assembly toolbar) or Insert > Component > Existing Part/Assembly.

    Previously saved documents that are currently open appear under Part/Assembly to Insert.

    Do not pin the PropertyManager. When inserting components in succession, you can insert only one instance of each component.

  2. Under Part/Assembly to Insert, do one of the following:
    • Ctrl + select several components from the list.
    • Click Browse. In the dialog box, Ctrl + select several components and then click Open.

    In the graphics area, a preview of the first component is attached to the pointer.

  3. In the graphics area, click to place the first component.

    In the PropertyManager, the component disappears from the list. In the graphics area, a preview of the next component is attached to the pointer.

    After placing the last component, the PropertyManager closes. Each component is inserted where you clicked to place it.
