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
