    Thank you Jake!
    Looks like I was trying to connect wrong parts, I am a beginner and unfortunately doesn't have any experience with CAD software but onshape is awesome!

    I tend to hit 'Solve' before closing the mate dialog to see the final position before confirming. This was a bit odd in the beginning but after some time it's actually good to first see what you are adding to the stack and then combine new rule with existing ones.
