SOLIDWORKS 2017: Magnetic Mates

Working with large assemblies can often be challenging due to the sheer number of models that get loaded and the interactions that need to be solved between these components. This can be particularly difficult when working with layouts to optimize space and organize equipment.

SOLIDWORKS 2017 introduces magnetic mates, a real game-changer when working with large assemblies. Not only are they easy to set up, magnetic mates can also be easily broken by simply dragging to unsnap, and then re-snapping the model to a new location.
