Mechanical mates include cam-follower, gear, hinge, rack and pinion, screw, slot, and universal joint mates. A cam-follower mate is a type of tangent or coincident mate. It allows you to mate a cylinder, plane, or point to a series of tangent extruded faces, such as you would find on a cam.

Some CAD systems, such as SolidWorks and Pro/ENGINEER, also offer mechanical mates, such as cam follower, gear, hinge, rack and pinion, screw, and universal joint. These are essential for kinematic analysis of the product design.Mates are interchangeable blocks in Solidworks. They are similar to the pins in 3D printing. Mates help in creating assemblies and parts with ease.

A slot mechanical mate is software that makes it easier to use the slotting function in the Solidworks software. It allows you to create sketches and then automatically generate parts for them. Slot mechanical mate is a relatively common tool that can help you save time by generating the right parts. The easiest way to use this tool is by creating a sketch using either lines or objects or symbols then clicking on the one you want
