I have managed to create a custom view in the assemblies (1st image) . But when I go to the drawings and select that particular view, it shows the unexploded view (2nd image). How do I create an isometric view for the drawings?
Dennis you have the view you want already defined. On your drawing click on that view. In the properties dialogue box there is an option to show in the exploded state. Choose that.
Hope this helps.
Or you can save it as a custom display state. See Jim's response below!!!

Don't do this. As I stated here: "Anyone who rotates a view in a drawing file should be drawn and quartered. "
Get the model oriented how you want it, and then make a new view:
Use this view in your drawing.
Go into your assembly, rotate to the position you like, hit the space bar, select 'add new view'
Go to your drawing and either change the Orientation > more views to the newly created view. Or add a new view and select the newly created view.
IMHO you'll get a better angle than rotating in the drawing.
Thanks for the input everyone. I never realised you were able to rotate the components in the drawing... and I never knew there was a button to make it exploded!
