    never had this problem before because it was just a matter of selecting the hole diameter of one object and mating it with another hole and they would both match up bang on. however i cant seem to do it this time because the cad model i downloaded the holes are split into 2 pieces as shown in the pic, so when i am mating and i select 1 half of the hole it doesn't align up with my plate holes.

    any tips please?

    The other thing I'd try is using a concentric mate rather than a bog standard coincident faces mate.
