SolidWorks 2013 Sneak Peek: Insert Multiple Components in Assemblies

Here’s another new cool feature for 2013. In the Insert Components PropertyManager, you can select multiple components at a time and then insert each one in succession without returning to the Property Manager. Also, if you double-click the assembly origin, all the selected components are inserted at once, each with respect to the origin.

A quick video on the new feature

    any news on whether you can control muliple parts from one external spreadsheet? even if each part has two drop downs 7 manual inputs or more each.

        thanks for the reply!. I think in 2013 they let you have one drop down to in your assembly level spreadsheet to configure each of your parts. This is not really enough for what I require as I want full automation of al parts from the assembly level spreadsheet. Do you have any knowledge of driveworks?
