Creating 'Instances'

I don’t know if this is possible but can one create an object and then place instances of it throughout a model that can all be edited at once if necessary?

Hi James Yes, sort of - use the Block command to create the initial definition. When done, the object you see will be an instance - you can copy it around or Insert new copies. On the mac, I think, you need to Explode the block instance, make changes then Block again to the same name to adjust all copies. (no BlockEdit yet) It pays to put a point object in the original and use that as the insertion point every time you re-do the block.
