Exploded views of parts not only look cool, they serve a purpose in product design and development. If you’ve ever wondered how to create an exploded view, or wanted to learn more about the master model concept in general, then this NX Quick Tip is for you.
First, why would someone create an exploded view? I mentioned that they serve a purpose. Exploded view images allow you to see all parts in an assembly at once and how they fit together. They’re handy to use with instructions on how to assemble a product.
Now that you know the purpose exploded view images serve, let’s look at the master model concept in general. This is when you have separate assembly and drawing files, so that two or more engineers may work on them concurrently.
For how to create an exploded view using the master model concept, watch the video tutorial below.
