How to download an assembly, with all mates present.

Question by Trevor Brown

How do I download a solidworks assembly file, with the mates present? It seems that when I am downloading assembly files, the mates do not come with it.

IGES files are assembly with all mates.
If you download IGES, Solidworks will create the assembly and all parts.

First check the files from the model before downloading
Solidworks parts need to be present, if not assembly won't build.
Lots of members only upload the assembly without the parts...useless!!!
Sometimes you will find an assembly with the parts "build in", but these files need to be "heavy" (read: Mb's)
