Mate Matching Surfaces

lorenz_poigerlorenz_poiger Member Posts: 15 PRO
I would like to mate these two parts so that the surfaces are touching eachother (The parts will be welded). They both have the same radius and should fit together perfectly. Is there an easy way to do that? Or do I have to use the fastened mate? Tangential doesnt work, but I'm unsure if I understand how the function works.

    A fastened mate is probably the best way to go. You can mouse over the coped face to select mate connectors at the center of the curved surface (see screenshot). You may have to use an offset unless you want it exactly aligned with the midpoint of the larger part.
