I seeking how to get a 3D file showing only the exploded state of an assembly
Good morning Erwann,
I just did a small assembly of 10 parts and it worked well, I might be able to look at a larger assembly later. It should work just the same, except the computer processing speed, you may have some issues there.
When doing the save as, check on the options button and make some changes there and see what happens,
If you explode an assembly those changes stay in the file, I'm not sure why you would need to have it saved with only a exploded configuration. When you explode an assembly those changes remain in the file.
Yes you can save an exploded assembly in a iges format,
Thank you, John,
I have just tried and it works very well in iges format on an assembly made of 2 parts
But I tried on a bigger assaembly (about 50 parts): SolidWorks makes the IGS files, but when I try to get back SolidWorks Files from these IGES files, SolidWorks fails after creating half the part files and no assembly
I wonder if there are parameters to define when exporting/importing via iges files
Thanks again John,
I think this is a good solution.
I have to try it with more numerous parts, and if need on a stronger computer
