I'm using an Advanced mates > Distance to restrict the gap between the two plates above (edges of the plates are the mate objects). This works, but also allows for:
i.e. here the second plate has been dragged so much "inland" that the distance of the edges is again acceptable to the mate.
How can I restrict the distance to be only in one direction?
Using SolidWorks 2018 SP 1.0
I found the reason. If I use a distant mate between _faces_ (not edges), the behavior is how I want it.
