Example of Mate Reference with Multiple Mated Entities

Components bushing, shaft01, and shaft02 each have a mate reference named shaft, defined as follows:

Primary

Secondary

Tertiary

Entity

Mate Type

If bushing is a component of an assembly, and you insert shaft01 into the assembly, the components mate automatically. However, if you insert shaft02 into the assembly, it does not mate automatically with bushing because their mate references do not contain the same number of entities.

mate automatically

bushing01 and shaft02
