I am trying to generate a set of random points within a polygon which have a minimum distance from one another AND a minimum distance from the polygon boundary. For example, generate three random points per polygon which are 150m away from each other and which are 75m from the polygon boundary.

I have used the EtGeoWizards tool to do this, but there should be a way to do it within base ArcGIS?
