Hi all I am now assembling some components and I have added mates to a two components but there not in the position I want them in.

I know I could grab them and rotate them till they are (ball joint assembly BTW) but this is picky.

 

Is there a way to select the part and a face and align the part with out adding a mate

 

So basicllay it works like a mate that it moves the part and aligns it rotates it etc but it does not add an actual mate?.

 

Thanks
