Is there a way to infinitely make a certain mesh appear in blender?

I am animating a production line. I want a mesh to appear at a certain place every 10 seconds, so the longer we run the animation, the more mesh there is in memory.

You can use Animation Nodes to do that without coding.

enter image description here

Create a source collection to pick the object templates from.

enter image description here

Then:

  • Test if time is reached using a "repeat time" node. "Repeat time" will loop from 0 to a given value over time.

  • Get a random object from the source collection.

  • Create an instance when time is reached and keep this instance putting it in another collection.

(have added a little animation, but this is not the point here)
