Block from an Assembly?

Hi Gang,


I hope I am not asking a really dumb question here, but I need a little help. I have an assembly where I am bolting together several parts. On each of the parts there are mounting flanges that have ten (10) fastener points. Each one of these points is made up of a screw, two flat washers, a lock washer and a hex nut. I was hoping to create a block of the hardware so I could define the insertion point and then insert that into my assembly at the points I need. I have not been able to figure this out, so what I have done is created an assembly of the hardware stack and then inserting that in as a component.


So I guess I have a couple of questions. First can you make a block of an assembly? If I can not make a block of the hardware stack is there a more efficient way besides the way I have done so far?


Thanks for all your help
