Mate tools in assemblies allow for convenient and intuitive assembly of components with intelligent assumption and repetitive options. Automate mates while adding a component to an assembly use Smart Mates to mate existing components use Smart Mates with circular edges to generate multiple mates simultaneously create multiple mates to a common reference using multi-mate mode in the Mate command explore different techniques to edit mate features Use the Copy with Mates command to create new instances of components along with their mates some mate references for the copied mates are repeated some of the copied mates require new mate references

Sketch Booleans can be generated from the addition, subtraction, or intersection of overlapping sketch objects. The original geometry used in creating the sketch Boolean is retained in the Design Tree and can be shown in the Work Area. Sketch Booleans can also be removed to return to the original geometry. Create sketch Booleans by adding, subtracting, and using the intersection of existing sketch objects. Use the Show Hidden Geometry command to display the underlying sketch objects. Use Remove Boolean to revert back to the original sketch geometry.

SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual (SWMC) can be used to develop concepts using a variety of detail. Capabilities exist to explore concept mechanisms using simple 2D sketches, 3D primitive shapes, full 3D parametric designs, or a combination of techniques. Use sketch objects to test concepts in 2D. Use primitives to quickly develop components when a simple 3D representation is required. Use parametric models to create detailed models for a design concept. Explore the power of combining parametric features with direct editing techniques for flexible options for design changes.

Some items in the SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual (SWMC) user interface are shared with other apps on the 3DExperience Platform. These include the compass, search field, and services buttons on the top bar. Other elements are unique to working within SWMC including the action bar, design tree, tabs, bread crumbs, dialog windows, and task panel. Understand the benefits of using SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual for concept design. Use the capabilities of the single modeling environment and editing capabilities to eliminate the limitations of strategizing a models structure ahead of time. Use collaboration tools and communities to involve all project stake holders in the development of a design as the concept evolves.
