Mate direction editing in solidworks

By farzad on 20 Apr 11:35 1 answer 228 views 0 comments

Using the Mates in Assembly, most of the times brings up on problem , the direction of the mating, to correct that, we should choose the edit mate to invert the mating direction. Which takes time cause you have to go to the last constraint that you have created and do the task again and again, I would like to shortcut it. Is there any solution ?

    If you right click the mate in the model tree 'flip alignment' will change the alignment direction without having get into the edit feature dialogue for the mate, if that helps. It tends to be a little quicker for me when I'm forced to use mates.
