Weldment profile with repeating feature along the profile

Hi there,

lately, I've been using a lot of DIN rails in my designs. See image attached.


I'm wondering what the easiest way to set this up would be. The first thing that came to mind was a weldment, but I'm not sure how it would be possible to create the repeating holes along the rail.


Ideally, I'd like to quickly be able to pull this in to a new model, select the length needed, and be done with it.

A second best alternative would probably be to save a part template with the profile skech and the repeated hole feature, and simply edit the length and save as part.

Configurations are probably out of the question - I can't set up configurations for all lengths needed.


What are your thoughts on this?
