I have been using SW for 7 years now and today I learned something that I should have thought of trying many, many years ago. I had learned and always done a common 3 mate approach when constraining parts in an assembly, mate a top face/plane to a top face/plane, a right face/plane to a right face/plane, mate a front face/plane to a front face/plane.
But this morning I tried something else, I mated a horizontal edge to a horizontal edge and vertical edge to a vertical edge fully constraining a part, 2 mates instead of my typical 3.
Who else is using this technique? Advantages, disadvantages? My only worry is that there may be some unforeseen errors in my future, naaaa, when does that ever happen?
