Mates are used to connect assembly components geometrically. You determine the permissible directions of linear or rotational motion of the components as you add mates. You may visualise the behaviour of an assembly by moving a component within its degrees of freedom.
Angle, coincident, concentric, distance, lock, parallel, perpendicular, and tangent mates are all common mates. Limit, linear/linear coupler, route, symmetry, and width mates are examples of advanced mates.

Standard Mates are the small geometric shapes that are used to align parts and assemblies in Solidworks. They are created by extruding a face or a body feature of an existing shape.
Standard Mates can be used on any Solidworks document, including 2D and 3D models. It also provides an easy way to create complex shapes and designs in order to make it easier for users to create more efficient parts.
