Good morning Paolo,
Yes, there is "sequential fitting" using the "fitmap" command.  See here for explanations including command options and link to a short video:


There is also symmetric fitting of multiple copies of the same structure:


I'd probably try the above first, but yet another related feature is MultiFit, which uses a web service (in menu under Tools… Volume Data):

I hope this helps,
