Part Patterns in Assemblies

In an assembly, how do you create a pattern of three (3) parts at once, for exaplme; a bolt, nut and washer, can all three be selected and a pattern of all of them be selected and a pattern created, or is there a copy command that will work better, please give step by step solutions, for us beginners.

Group the parts using right mouse button.

Once grouped, you can pattern together or you can use copy.

Hello.

 

Thanks, it worked well. 

You can also store the combination of components as a User Defined Feature (.gph file) to place over and over again. This will also appear in the Model Tree as a Local Group.

IFX is also pretty good at allowing you to place combinations of fasteners in a pattern of holes.
