tips on creating path mates

By antony hibberd on 30 Jan 01:01 2 answers 963 views 2 comments

I'm working on an excavator track, which consists of links and shoes. I have an assembly of one link and one shoe, with their corresponding mates. Its exactly like a motorcycle or bicycle chain, just a larger scale. I've seen tutorials on mating chain links to a path, however they only show 3 links. my question is, is there a way to copy the assembly with the Concentric mate and the path mate, or does every link need to individually mated? thanks for taking the time to read this
