What is explode geometry useful for?
Instead of wasting time moving the parts individually this technique automates the process. The result of exploding the geometry can be useful for:
- Showing the components used in creating the assembly (BOM)
- Showing the assembly process (step by step instructions)
Creating an exploded geometry view
The user can create multiple explode geometry steps for the assembly, one after the other to control the level of details to be shown to the user. Explode geometries can be saved in a stack so the user can undo the steps one by one. The result of explode geometry can be used in creating an animation, to be rendered or viewed in an animated 3D PDF.
