I have one assembly, which has no icon "mates" in tree.
I can add mates, and it works (icon still doesnt exist), but after save -->close--> load mates not working.
What happend? Is any method to repair my assembly?
Are components in the assembly set to resolved or in lightweight. Try changing from light weight to resolved, do a ctrl + Q and then check.
Also after you add mate --> save -->close--> open file, does the components have - with their name/part number in the feature manager i.e are the components free to rotate/move anywhere.
Try this macro. Make sure nothing is selected, then run the macro. This will see if the mates folder has somehow become hidden.
Here You go.
I removed all of parts, exlude two, for example.
Well.. I can get the mates working (though updating files to 2009-versions) even after close and reopen.. but the mates icon just won't show in the tree - it shows as a feature in the part, but only until close and reopen. If I were you, I'd make a new assembly file.
