Adding Components by Dragging and Dropping

Within an assembly, you can drag and drop components to create additional instances.

To add another component instance:

  1. With an assembly open, hold the Ctrl key, then drag a component either from the FeatureManager design tree, or from within the graphics area.
    A preview of the component appears.
  2. Drop it in the graphics area. You can inference the assembly origin.
    When you add a new instance of a component, the instance number suffix (component<n>) is incremented.
You can also add components by dragging from other open document windows.
