How to autoplace components that will interfere when installed.



Example: PEM nuts, studs, standoffs, etc. by design, interfere with its parent when installed.

When attempting to autoplace a component that will, by design, interfere with the original part - you need to un-check the 'interference of matches'. To do this, in an assembly, go to Tools->Assembly Settings->Placement Preferences expand the 'Advanced Interface Search' and un-check the 'Check interference of matches.
