Mate Reference feature can be added to frequently used components to automate common mates.
Follow the steps to know ‘How to Automatically Repair a Missing Mate Reference’
When you right-click on an assembly Mate reference that’s missing or broken, you can select Auto Repair to automatically define a new reference.
SOLIDWORKS repairs the missing reference by selecting a component reference that’s in the same location and orientation as the missing reference.
You can repair multiple references at once by right-clicking the Mates Folder icon and selecting Auto Repair.
