    Shouldnt copy with mates be faster than manual placement?

    james demarco

      More of a rant than a question, but perhaps someone knows a trick I am missing.  Back in 2014 and earlier versions I used copy with mates A LOT because it was VERY fast.  Seems like many other "enhancements" the tool is now slower than if I simply manually place items.  Am I missing something???

      I love SolidWorks - but each new release I grow more an more concerned that the enhancements have been added at the cost of performance.

      Is there a trick, or an option I can set to make it not try to think for me, just place the part - do not solve, do not rebuild, do not analyze just place it.
