New in SolidWorks 2014: Default Mate

DefaultMate2SolidWorks 2014 helps you build assemblies faster and with more automation using mating intelligence. Now, SolidWorks automatically determines proper mates that will not over-constrain your parts, based on the geometry and existing constraints on the bodies. This avoids overconstraining parts and the need to manually adjust the mate type.

See it in action below, and be sure to check out our new SolidWorks 2014 website to see everything else that’s new.
