I am wondering if this can be accomplished....

 

I have a fixture and within that fixture I need to place thousands of small cylinders. The cylinder is perfectly round and they all sit within the fixture tangent to the ones around them. The problem is the fixture has zigs and zags and sometimes "windows" within the fixture. To accomplish what I need to do it takes several linear patterns and I have to sit there and click on instances to skip foreverrrrrrrr. Some parts have over 10,000 which can obviously be very tedious. Is there a fill pattern for a component in an assembly.

 

I hope someone can make me feel like an idiot for spending hours to do something that should take a minute.
