Smart Mate tools are designed to make it easy for you to create your own Smart Mate configurations. Think of them as templates that you can choose from and customize on the fly.
To use these tools, first open the Smart Mate configuration dialog box by selecting the Options tab on the Project Browser toolbar. Next, select Smart Mate configuration from the list of available tabs in this dialog box. Then choose one of your configurations and click Ok to activate it. Subsequent steps vary depending on whether you are creating or modifying a configuration.
To create a new configuration, select New Configuration from the list of options along with the desired category in the bottom left corner of this dialog box. For example, if you want to create a bend part that will be used for creating an elbow joint then select Bend > Elbow
