Placement of a large number of instances of component in model

This is an application of dynamic components in the development of a mining model. The problem is to layout a “block model” of an ore body, which may contain several thousand blocks of 3m x 3m x 6m up to 25m x 25m x 50m in size. They are simple rectangular blocks and the blocks may or may not be contiguous to one another. Has anyone had experience creating such a block model using dynamic components. Ideally, I would want to import a data file with X, Y, Z positions for each instance of the component(s). They may also need to be color coded to indicate certain geophysical attributes. Thanks for your help.

I have no experience with what you are trying to do but a little searching found this,

Or perhaps this extension…


Ryan, this appears to be very helpful. Thanks for taking the time to point it out.
