What is the purpose of the cylindrical mate in Onshape?

What does a cylindrical mate do in Onshape?

Mate two entities allowing translational movement along the Z axis and rotational movement about the Z axis (Tz, Rz).

When a mate is initially defined does Onshape solve the entire model or just that mate?

4. When a mate is initially defined, does Onshape solve the entire model, or just that mate? Just that mate.

How many degrees of freedom does a Revolute mate have?

For example, a revolute (or hinge or pin) joint allows the rotation of one rigid body with respect to another rigid body about a common axis. Therefore, a revolute joint eliminates a total of five DOF: three translational and two rotational.

How many entities can you choose to mate with an angle mate?

Click Mate (Assembly toolbar) or Insert > Mate. In the Mate PropertyManager, for Entities to Mate , select two entities in the graphics area or the flyout FeatureManager design tree. Under Standard Mates, click Angle and set the dimension.

Which type of mate Cannot be applied between two edges?

Which type of mate cannot be applied between two edges? The Perpendicular Mate will let you create angle mates of 90, 180, 270, or 360 degrees between selected entities. After making a Perpendicular Mate, moving one face will change the angle from 90 degrees.
