Slot Mate

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.

ParameterTypeDescription
ConstraintOne of the following values:
  • Free
  • Centered
  • Distance
  • Percent
Sets how to constrain the component in the slot of this slot mate.
Distance Along SlotDistance in the SOLIDWORKS Document Units.Sets the distance from the end of the slot where to place the component axis in this slot mate.

The Constraint parameter must result in Distance.

Flip DimensionTrue/FalseSets whether to change the endpoint from where to measure distance.
Mate AlignmentOne of the following values:
  • Aligned
  • Anti-Aligned
  • Closest
Sets the mate alignment of the slot mate.
Percent Along Slot

Double

(A number from 1 to 100)

Sets the percent of slot length where to place the component axis in this slot mate.

The Constraint parameter must result in Percent.
