Distance Mate Features

This document describes the types of rules that can be applied to models that have advanced feature parameters captured.

Driving advanced feature dimensions increases model generation time. Where possible capture feature dimensions (distances, numbers and angles) as dimensions rather than an advanced feature parameter.

During model generation captured dimensions are driven before captured advanced feature parameters. If the advanced feature parameter has also been captured as a dimension the value being driven into the advanced feature parameter will override the captured dimension.

Distance Mates

ParameterTypeDescription
DistanceDistance valueSets the distance mate between 2 different components

(Units are the same as those set within the SOLIDWORKS model settings)

Flip DimensionTrue/FalseSets whether to move entities to opposite sides of the dimension of this distance mate
Mate AlignmentOne of the following values:

0 = Aligned

1 = Anti Aligned

2 = Closest

Sets the alignment of this distance mate
