Lets say I've modeled a window (with the frame, glass, handle...), set the constraints limiting the translation, and set the parenting hierarchy.

Now I'd like to reuse the entire window somewhere else in the scene. Currently what I'd do is duplicate linked each part/object and assemble as they should be, but this is so counter intuitive and time consuming.

I think there should be a way to wrap the entire model so you only see it as a single thing in the outline explorer, and you copy once the entire thing, including modifiers, etc. Anyone knows what I'm talking about? Afaik this was possible in Maya, so hope someone can help me achieve this. Thank you in advance.

PS: I've seen that if I put the item in a collection I can make a hard copy, but what I want is a linked copy.
