    Hi @C_Justin

    All the transformations returned are in reference to the 'global coordinate system' (just the assembly's coordinate system), however the coordinate system of each mate connector can also be retrieved, and so, AFAIK, you could get the transformation WRT the mate connector given those two transformations. Could you explain in a little bit more about what you are hoping to do?
