Using SmartMate to stack the same part on top of itself multiple times?

I've got a situation where I need to insert the same part many times into assemblies and I need to stack it onto itself almost like a lego chimney of sorts (and in my case, the legos are cyclindrical), one after the other. Is it possible to pull that off with smartmates or mate references in some way? Patterning won't work for me because I need to be able to choose different configurations of the part as I'm stacking it. I don't mind putting the parts in one at a time, it's just that there should be an easy way for the bottom of my next part to notice and mate to the top of the previous part.
