Flange to Flange Connection within the same Route Assembly

Dear Solidworks users,


Good Day.


I would like to seek your professional help regarding the routing feature of solidworks.

I already spent a week aiming to solve this problem I encountered.


This is regarding the flange to flange connections withing the same route assembly.

I attached jpg files showing my problem.


When using the Solidworks' default flange components I am able to connect flanges easily and it even automatically mate itself to the other flange.

however when I created our companies' own standard libraries and followed the routing wizard in creating flange it still fail.

I compared the solidworks' default and even tried to copy the settings for the mate reference, however it still won't mate.


Am I missing something?

I really appreciate your help on this.

We will be starting to use the piping library by next week and hoping someone can help me with this concern.


Thank You Very Much.
