Assemblies (Snap Mate when Inserting)
One for the "It would be nice one day" pot.
When inserting parts in an assembly that contain their own explicit mates it currently feels a bit wrong that we can't snap them into place by wafting them on top of existing mate connectors in the assembly.
In this example I'm inserting a "Pin" that has two mates of its own. The part I'm about to attach it to also has a mate...
It'd be great if these mate points would "wake up" when we hover over them and then build a mate if we "LMB-release" over them.
For bonus points it'd be nice if we were prompted on type of mate required, and were given the opportunity to name it, but I'd settle for an unnamed fasten mate if that makes it easier!
