About Placing a Component Using Temporary Interfaces
Whenever a component is placed in an assembly, the system "remembers" the placement set definition. When the same component is again placed in the assembly, you can place it using the temporary interface.
To create a new temporary interface, activate temporary interface placement and place the component without using a previously defined interface. The number of temporary interfaces available is equal to the number of placement definitions for the component in the assembly.
Temporary interfaces are saved with the assembly and are only available for component placement in the assembly in which they were defined. Temporary interface names cannot be changed.
Best practice dictates the configuration of interfaces in the component before component placement. Placement definition criteria can then be more rigidly controlled and a more efficient workflow created. Temporary interfaces do not convey design intent.
