Hi,

 

I am building a large assembly of a few hundreds of assemblies/sub-assemblies and individual solid parts. I am using SolidWorks 2018.

 

I would like to delete all mates related to a given element, as there were changes relative to that part and I need to readjust it. Some mates are originating problems.

 

What is the best way to:

 

-Copy the name of a given component:- I know how to get the name  to appear on the screen by selecting it with the mouse. I also know I can filter the component on the tree by the name. However, I don't know how to copy the name of a component by selecting it with the mouse.

 

-Once component is identified in the tree, I know how I can delete all mates.

 

 

Thank you

 

Best regards,
