Thank You Sir May I Have Another....

A simple but useful feature has been included in Inventor 2009.... Place Component Orientation. What this allows you to do is place multiple instances of a component into your assembly based on the LAST INSTANCE orientation. That's a component and position it where you like in your assembly based on the last occurrence. An option in the Application Options allows you to place subsequent instances in the assembly in the same orientation as the last placed instance. This will allow you to insert many components into your designs without having a one and only default orientation. This should make it easier to place multiple components in your designs without having to constantly re-orientate it to what your design dictates.
