I am new to SolidWorks and have been enjoying it immensely. I've just started working with assemblies and drawings. I have 2 questions:


1. Are there any tips for assembly in the sense of how to construct in a logical mannerr? Basically, how do you not get confused about where things are, go and act while assembling a large project?


2. What is a good example of when to use the tangent mate? So far I've really only used parellel, concentric and coincident.


Any help, tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
