Preventing Rotation in Concentric Mates

  1. Open the Mate PropertyManager for a concentric mate:
    • For an existing mate, in the FeatureManager design tree, select the concentric mate and click Edit Feature .
    • For a new mate, click Insert > Mate. On the Standard tab, select Concentric and select the components to mate.
  2. In the PropertyManager, select Lock rotation and click .
    To lock rotation on all concentric mates in an assembly, in the FeatureManager design tree, right-click the Mates folder and click Lock Concentric Rotation.
