Parameters

MateTypeFromEnum
Type of mate as defined in swMateType_e
AlignFromEnum
Type of alignment as defined in swMateAlign_e
Flip
True to flip the component, false to not
Distance
Distance value; valid only if MateTypeFromEnum is swMateType_e.swMateDISTANCE
DistanceAbsUpperLimit
Absolute maximum distance allowed; valid only if MateTypeFromEnum is swMateType_e.swMateDISTANCE
DistanceAbsLowerLimit
Absolute minimum distance allowed; valid only if MateTypeFromEnum is swMateType_e.swMateDISTANCE
GearRatioNumerator
Gear ratio numerator value; valid only if MateTypeFromEnum is swMateType_e.swMateGEAR
GearRatioDenominator
Gear ratio denominator value; valid only if MateTypeFromEnum is swMateType_e.swMateGEAR
Angle
Angle value; valid only if MateTypeFromEnum is swMateType_e.swMateANGLE
AngleAbsUpperLimit
Absolute maximum angle allowed; valid only if MateTypeFromEnum is swMateType_e.swMateANGLE
AngleAbsLowerLimit
Absolute minimum angle allowed; valid only if MateTypeFromEnum is swMateType_e.swMateANGLE
ForPositioningOnly
True to only position the components according to the mating relationship and not return a mate, false to return a mate
LockRotation
True to lock component rotation, false to not
WidthMateOption
Width mate options as defined in swMateWidthOptions_e; valid only if MateTypeFromEnum is swMateType_e.swMateWIDTH
ErrorStatus
Success or error as defined by swAddMateError_e

Example

Remarks

The first selections should be the two items that are mated (that is, two faces, edge and face, and so on), and the third selection should be the mate feature to be edited. The mate feature must be selected last. The two mated items must be selected with a selection mark of 1. See ISelectData or IModelDocExtension::SelectByID2 for details on using selection marks.

If MateTypeFromEnum is swMateType_e.swMateDISTANCE or swMateType_e.swMateANGLE, and the mate is applied to the closest position that meets the mate condition specified by Distance or Angle, then setting Flip to true moves the assembly to the other possible mate position.

 

This method does not support editing Inplace mates.
