How can I see the construction axes in an asssembly to make some mates ?
Welcome to SolidWorks forums Paul.
In the assembly, under View menu, select "Temporary Axes"
You might also find this post helpful for your future reference.
I would also like to welcome you to the forum. In addition to what Deepak said, I want to point out that you can set a keyboard shortcut to toggle temporary axes on and off (mine is the A key). RMB at the top of your screen to pull up the list of toolbars, click on "Customize..." at the bottom, then choose the Keyboard tab. The extensive list of commands that can be given shortcuts is hard to dig through, but if you start typing temporary axes in the Search box it will pop up pretty quick.
Welcome to the forum.
There are the temporary axis and the regular axis. I would suggest in an assembly to either create your own axis or use the
regular axis, not the temporary ones.
I like Glen have both of these types linked to seperate "F" keys.
Why do you recommend not using temporary axes? I've used them for hundreds of mates, linear patterns, and circular patterns without a problem.
Because I have experienced as well as seen too many times when constraints are made to temporary axis and as geometry changes the temps go away and this cause model failures.
OK, thanks. Maybe I've just been lucky.
If you never make any changes or alter the models then you should be fine.
At least this is something for you to be aware of.
