    Quicker Mate Replication

    David Flynn

      I am looking for a quicker way to make repetitive mates. The mate in particular is shown below. It is a two piece assembly, which is concentrically mated (locked rotation), then coincidentally mated to the bottom of a hole. This mate is then repeated for identical holes in different locations.

       

      Currently I am creating the mate once, then using copy with mates to fill other holes. This method works, but results in a lot of extra clicks which add up over time. Is there any way to either mass-replicate this mate, or at least copy the mate with less clicks? I have been trying to find a way to do it using smart components or smart fasteners, but as of now have not found a way to make it work.
