Explode View


New member
I have an assembly with parts and other assemblies, I want to explode the view in a way that the sub-assemblies stay intact and only the parts are exploded.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
If you want to move the subassys and parts as units. Do as you use with parts regarding to everything but when you select use the Model Tree, click on the sub-assy and move it. It will then move as a unit.
Just remember to set your preferences to "Move with Children" to make sure your subs move dependently unless you intend to move them independently.
