Check to see if the Explode status is disabled for the part.

In 2001 click- Modify- Mod Expld- Expld Status. Then select the part to toggle the status.

If i might suggest, you always go toview manager wich is the camera icon. You will be able to create your own views with the orientation that will fit you needs, plus simpl. rep. ,etc. tried it's greate for presentation purposes.

I use view manager I should stat that the view manager should be your only way of exploding and simp reps unless you want problems!

But that's not what my post was about
