Explode a single part file

Valued Contributor

Hi,

 

In  some cases I will design in part edit environment using multiple design bodies rather than creating multiple separate part files and arranging in an assembly file. I only do this in certain cases where it seems simpler and faster. However, I've discovered that you can't use ERA explode tools on a single part file.  Does anyone know if there's a work around or any way to explode a single part file with multiple design bodies? I need to show an exploded view in Draft.

 

Thanks,

 

Matt

You can publish the multibody which will automatically create a linked assembly and parts with minimal effort. It will, of course, create additional linked part and assembly files, but the resulting assembly can be exploded as normal.

 

I am not aware of an easier way to do it with only the multibody part file itself.
