I have a piping assembly that needs large numbers of support assemblies along the line. I created some support base parts with named mate references in them so that I could insert them into the piping assembly and position them where I want and they would be located correctly (relative to the other support parts). SW always crashes before I can get the supports fully defined. I have had this issues with every type of mate I have tried (parallel, coincident, perpendicular, tangent...)
I am running SW 2011 SP5 64-bit with an i7-2670QM 2.2GHZ, geforce 525gt, 8G RAM.
Any and all thoughts appreciated.
