Newbie using SW2011:


I have an assembly of a box part and a top cover part.  I want to make a configuration where I show the top cover lifted off the box and flipped around to show the box and the inside of the top cover.  When I explode the configuration  I can move it X, Y, and Z but don't see how to rotate just the top cover to see the inside?


Someone showed me how to make a configuration to show that by putting a second instance of the top cover in the assembly with it mated in the position I want to show and then suppressing that rotated instance in all configurations except the exploded one where it is shown in that rotated position.  There's got to be a better way, right???
