# Standard Mates by Entity

Mates create geometric relationships, such as coincident, perpendicular, tangent, and so on. Each mate is valid for specific combinations of geometry. The following tables list the valid mates for all geometry types.

## Circular or Arc Edge

Mate Entity Mate Entity Valid Mate Types
Circular or Arc Edge Circular or Arc Edge Concentric
Circular or Arc Edge Cone Coincident, Concentric
Circular or Arc Edge Cylinder Concentric, Coincident
Circular or Arc Edge Line Concentric
Circular or Arc Edge Plane Coincident

## Cone

Mate Entity Mate Entity Valid Mate Types
Cone Circular or Arc Edge Coincident, Concentric
Cone Cone Angle, Coincident, Concentric, Distance, Parallel, Perpendicular
Cone Cylinder Angle, Concentric, Parallel, Perpendicular
Cone Extrusion Tangent
Cone Line Angle, Concentric, Parallel, Perpendicular
Cone Plane Tangent
Cone Point Coincident, Concentric
Cone Sphere Tangent
Cone Surface Coincident, Perpendicular, Tangent
For Coincident, Perpendicular, and Tangent mates with a Surface entity, Surface refers to a non-analytic surface.

## Curve

Mate Entity Mate Entity Valid Mate Types
Curve Point Coincident, Distance

## Cylinder

Mate Entity Mate Entity Valid Mate Types
Cylinder Circular Edge Concentric, Coincident
Cylinder Cone Angle, Concentric, Parallel, Perpendicular
Cylinder Cylinder Angle, Concentric, Distance, Parallel, Perpendicular, Tangent

Cylinder Line Angle, Coincident, Concentric, Distance, Parallel, Perpendicular, Tangent
Cylinder Plane Distance, Tangent
Cylinder Point Coincident, Concentric, Distance
Cylinder Sphere Concentric, Tangent
Cylinder Surface Coincident, Perpendicular, Tangent
For Coincident and Perpendicular mates with a Surface entity, Surface refers to a non-analytic surface. For Tangent mates with a Surface entity, Surface refers to either a non-analytic surface or a surface.

## Extrusion
