    Insert Part Configurations Macro

    Rob Edwards

      Good Morning All

       

      I thought I would share this little macro.  I wrote it mostly for fun and learning but I sometimes use this technique so I find it quite useful.

       

      I tried to replicate the behaviour of the standard Insert Part command, but there is the option to choose one / multiple or all configurations directly from the property manager page

      .

       

      I find this useful for patterns that are difficult by other means, for me this is generally something like creating the treads on an irregular curved staircase, but here's a simple silly example.

      I have a part with multiple configurations created by Design Table,,, just a circle on a line whose position and diameter increase incrementally to the total length

      You can then insert ALL the configs in one click!
