Not only can I not auto-expode, I cannot save a manual explosion. The "save configuration" button gets greyed out. Anyone?
Edit: Figured out that you have to click the "display configurations" button, click the saved view, and then "update". Still haven't figured out the auto-explode problem though.
Edit 2: Actually you only have to click the "display configurations" button the FIRST time. Now I can continuously explode as much as I want and save because the button is ungreyed...
Is your assy imported model or assembled by you?
Auto explode doesn't work for imported assy, because it uses assy relationships between surfaces to define exploded direction, etc, but imported assy has no any relationships...
I am having the same problem as well, however when I enter the display configurations window, I am not able to create a new configuration, nor am I able to apply the configuration I have been working on because it doesn't have a name. If I try to create a new one and give it a name, a window appears asking if I want to enter ERA and apply the exploded configuration (I'm already IN the ERA function). If I say Yes anyway, it doesn't do any good.
Yes, we created all of the components of this assembly. Nothing is imported.
this will be hard to answer due to I have no ST8 up here.
Maybe it is a problem with ST8, but I do not remember any similar issues with ST8.
Do You have a Maintenance Pack installed?
As far as I know it's up to date, but I will ask IT to look into it. This problem hasn't happened before, and of the two of us here using Solid Edge, I'm the only one who is having this happen.
Thanks for the help though.
