One of my jobs at a lighting design company is to place stock light fixtures in which the only variation is size and if is an end piece or not, in a grid pattern with hubs to connect pieces. My current process is as follows:  1. Create a sketch using guidelines and midpoints as specified in the architects drawing as a guide for where fixtures go 2. Import appropriate sized fixture and mate them where they need to go on the sketch. Variations are size, end piece or not, and uplight or down light 3. Import the appropriate hub (corner, 4 way, end hub, etc) and mate to sketch 4. Import aircraft cable and mate to correct parts of the fixtures   This isn't bad with smaller quantities, but our company is planning on scaling up fast and I was wondering if there is a method/program/service where this process could be programmed or automated.   Anything helps, thanks!
