Trying to use exploded view, but nothing happens.
Do i have to delete all the mates i created for this to work?
any insight would be awesome... Thanks
Go to the Configurations tab and Right Click the configuration and add exploded view
Don't delete your mates
John is correct.
It is done in the assy model, not a drawing view.
The whole assembly moves with the arrows.
This was the key! It is always a tiny little checkmark that makes a difference.
Thanks a million!
You're quite welcome, but that feature is really nice to explode the top level assemblies and the check it to explode the sub-assemblies..
If you have an assembly with multiple configurations you can do one explode and copy that explode feature and paste it to the other configurations, if there are any differences in number of parts etc.. you would need to edit those explode paths to add the new parts or add a new explode line......
Also if you update explode view in sub assemblies, then simply right click in top level assembly exploded view and select update exploded steps (not in front of system, so can't post a pic or exact command).
