Exploded assembly


New member
After exploding the assembly I want to display how to explode by dashed line.
How can this be done?

After you created the Exploded View and repositioned everything, use the EXPLODE LINE SKETCH box in the top menu. With the ROUTE LINE active, just select the from and to geometry (from screw shaft, to hole). OK when the line is done, and repeat for the next line. Turn off the ROUTE LINE to edit/copy the lines. OK when you're done with the 3D sketch.
