You've uploaded the assembly file but you also need to upload the part files to go with it. Try pack-and-go to create a zip file and upload that.

It sounds like you need distance mates. You can also use these with that planes that are within parts.

I havent had a chance to download, but I think what you might be looking for is the "parallel" mate relation. It allows you to specify how far apart two part faces or edges can be.
