Mating Mates?!

Hey there,


i wonder if it possible to mate two mates. I have an assembly with 3 planes.  _ _ _  The plane in the middle is fixed. I mate the left one with the one in the middle ( angle min 0° max 90°). The right one with the one in the middle (min 0° max 50°). Now i want to mate the left and the right plane. If the right one is at max angle, the left one should be too. Same on min angle.


I'm using solidworks 2013, so its not possible for me to use global variables in my mates :/ otherwise i would use angle a = angle b *1,8


Maybe someone here has a solution?
