    Nice one Ben! This is certainly handy and one I use a lot when checking assembly motion/positions. Do you ever use the reset mates? I find quite often in this situation with revolute and cylindrical mates you can just hit reset and it will straighten the mate out to it original set position.

    NICE ADD! Reset is not one I knew of.
