Mates

  Just have to ask this question.  Do you have a problem with old Assemblies losing their mates after you go to a newer version of solid works.  Seems each year when we install the  newest version I will have some mate break for one part.  But that part is used in a few hundred Assemblies.  So I have to go back and fix all of them.  Usually find out when the shop floor calls and says the Assembly blew up.   Normally this is caused because someone used a surface mate and not and Axis or plane.

 

   Or if the Assembly had any locks in it this will also cause it.  I have to go in delete the lock and mate it correctly.
