Is there any way to assemble SOLIDWORKS parts in an assembly with less time and effort? When you repeatedly insert a part in an assembly, it will take so much time to assemble the parts because of multiple mates you need to add on each part and so on.

Mate Reference can be used in SOLIDWORKS assemblies and parts.
