I am trying to create exploded views and an assembly drawing that follows the build process. It is a very large system with over 100 parts including all of the fasteners. What I really want is for the main model to grow with each step so it actually reflects the current assembly condition at each assembly step.
I've tried making other configurations and hiding some of the parts but then they are hidden in every configuration. Has anyone else done this? Is this even possible or do I just need to bite the bullet and make one giant exploded view and try to make it clear with different drawing views? I'm having a lot of trouble making a single exploded view look clear in any way.
