If I try to add a mate, it says the components are already fully defined.
Can someone please help me understand this apparent contradiction?
The part you are trying to "copy with mates" should have existing mates already available.
If it is a fixed part or without mates, either remove that condition, add new mates to that part, then try copy with mates
Hope this helps
There are 2 parts in this assembly - a box, and a connector.
The connector is mated with:
- a coincident mate (rear face of connector with front face of box) (y-translation, x- and z-rotation locked)
- a parallel mate (top of connector parallel with top of box) (z-translation and y-rotation locked)
- a concentric mate (a single mounting hole on each is mated concentric) (x-translation locked)
Fully constrained via these three mates.
Right click on connector, copy with mates - "components are under-defined"
Try to add any mate at all - "components are fully defined"
Can you please post the assembly and part files here to check
Are you trying to copy the connector to a different slot or a hole?
To me it looks like a bug. Just click next to advance then OK and you will be fine.
