Coincident Mate Smartness in SOLIDWORKS 2017 while working in Large Assemblies

Purpose of coincident mate in SOLIDWORKS 2017

  • Coincident between two components happens exactly at the selected regions,
  • Coincident mate is applicable between conical faces too


Problem faced by large assembly designers

Normally if the coincident mate is given between two components, the components won’t be positioned in the selected region after coincident mate is given. The components may be hidden some were in assemblies. This is a tedious job for large assembly designers, the designer has to find the component and position to the desired place by using move component option. This is illustrated diagrammatically as follows ;

Is the time right to switch 3D CAD tools?

Might not be as hard as you think

Find out why the world’s best new products start with SOLIDWORKS

Are your engineers frustrated with your current 3D CAD tools? Are parts not fitting together the first time? Are you missing important product launch dates because of assembly issues? Does your CAD’s Data Management system take your engineers away from design work due to data chaos? Are you having trouble finding qualified engineers? If you are experiencing any of these issues, now is the time to switch to SOLIDWORKS.

Why 3d? Why you need to choose SOLIDWORKS?

Why 3d? Why you need to choose SOLIDWORKS?

2D Impact & Customer Expectation:

In olden days, people used to draw line sketches in a paper, after slowly they started using 2D application to create why3dcadaccurate 2d views – front, top, side, sectional, detail view. In addition to that, draftsman adds a title block which stores information like who created the drawing, when it was created, who approved, who changed, and for what purpose.

Why 3D ?

Later… people wanted to combine all the views and to visualize 3d in mind. It is diffcult to predict clearly how the products look like; So the entry of next dimension tool – 3D CAD software.

Initially people thought that this is sufficient and significant to do our 3d models whether it is simple or complex. Years later people started thinking that we need to put more value on built-in intelligence, improved collaboration and easy to use application.
