Bringing parts into an Assembly

Question asked by Glenn Schroeder on Jan 11, 2010

This may be a dumb question, but is there any way to control where parts are brought into an assembly?  When I bring them in I place them close to where I want them, but when I rotate my assembly they are often so far away that I have to RMB the part in the Feature Manager design tree and click zoom to selection to find them back.  On small assemblies this is not a problem, but I often have assemblies 100's of feet long and it is pretty easy to lose a 5/16'' nut.  I have tried bringing them in using the insert components button as well as dragging them in from my other monitor but I can't tell any difference.  It would be very helpful if they would stay close to where I drop them.

 

Thanks for any help,

Glenn
