Insert parts into assembly

    I have a number of stp file that I would like to insert into an assembly. All parts may be anchored (or constrained by planes) at the assembly origin. I'm not a script writer, but I have have had some success modifying macros and other simple code. Is there something like this out there?

    I did figure out that if I insert directly from the STP file into the assembly, Alibre places the part at the assembly origin. All I have to do then is anchor the part. That's pretty easy, but if I have 100 parts, I think a script would be worth some time to figure out.

    Never mind. Just realized I can select more than one part for insertion. Go to insert part, grab all of the stp files, insert, select them all in the part tree, anchor. Done.
