Exploded View in Animation


New member
Does anyone know if there is a way to animate an assembly going from the assembled state to an exploded state? When I try to take a snapshot an error box pops up saying I have to unexplode my assembly before I enter the drag model and create snapshot mode.


In the past, on small assemblies, have moved individual parts to show how the assembly goes together.... taking a snapshot of each movement of each part.

Time consuming, but works...

hope that helps!
