Insert a component (.skp file) in a precise point of the model space SU

Hello, everyone, a little help, please…
I insert the component (.skp file) into model space, through these few lines of code…

mod = Sketchup.active_model 
ent = mod.entities 
sel = mod.selection 

filepath = File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__),'/Smeg_Elettro/Lavelli/LLR116-2.skp')

cdef = mod.definitions.load(filepath)
mod.place_component(cdef)

I insert this component, through the click of the mouse in the space model…
Sink_1

Sink_2

I would like to insert this component ( .skp file) in a precise point of the model space, through the x, y, z coordinates of a point and that is therefore not hooked to the movement of the mouse… you can… thank you for your help…

Thank you very much, the advice, where to look to solve my little problem, always very kind in helping…

Okay… I think I understand… thanks again…

model = Sketchup.active_model
entities = model.active_entities

pt = Geom::Point3d.new(15.cm, 25.cm, 40.cm)
transform = Geom::Transformation.new(pt)
  
filepath = File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__),'/Smeg_Elettro/Lavelli/LLR116-2.skp')
defComp = model.definitions
compDef = defComp.load(filepath)
instance = entities.add_instance(compDef, transform)
