Mate References SOLIDWORKS Efficiency
3 years ago

Who needs mate references?

Anyone who is repeating the same mate selection process over and over … think in terms of assemblies with repeating components.

Lot’s of folks think in terms of LEGOs, the blocks simply snap together in the same fashion over and over.  Mate References allow us the ability to define the way that components assemble.  Basically, you have predefined mates! When you bring the two components together, they just “KNOW” where to go (because of your great design and planning).

It’s possible to increase your design time and WOW your friends with dazzling mate reference skills.
