Standard mates include angle, coincident, concentric, distance, lock, parallel, perpendicular, and tangent mates. Advanced mates include limit, linear/linear coupler, path, profile center, symmetry, and width mates.
Linear / linear coupler.
Assembly is the primary function of Solidworks. Therefore, it has many benefits that improve productivity and save time.
Solidworks is the most widely used 3D CAD software for engineering, manufacturing, and construction companies. It manages custom assemblies in one or more files that are linked to their corresponding parts in a single file system.
The assembly file can be edited to create a new part with a specific geometry or feature set. Some benefits of using an assembly include:
Reducing part count and material use by sharing features across multiple parts
Reducing manufacturing cost by sharing components across multiple parts
Reducing lead time for manufacturing because it reduces number of design iterations required to create a new part
