    Set priority multiple mate references

    Roel Schepens

      I have a model with 2 different mate references (MR) named "connection" and "support".

      MR connection is created 2 times and support is created 5 times.


      But with these MR's SolidWorks (2015) is always applying MR support, even if I'm snapping on the location where I have created the MR connection.

      When I delete 2 of the support MR’s, then SolidWorks let me choose which MR I can apply by hovering the mouse pointer on the right location.

      Somehow SolidWorks is setting the priority to a Mate Reference that is added more then 3 times.


      I already contacted the helpdesk of our CAD reseller, but unfortunately they don’t have a solution yet.

      They have tested it in SolidWorks 2018, but this version has the same behaviour.


      How can I set the priority / order of MR's?

      Anyone who has experience with this “bug”?
