More flexibility when creating Exploded Views of assemblies. It just got faster and easier to explain how your assembly goes together with SOLIDWORKS 2019.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, but an Animation is Worth a Lot More
Exploded views are a great way to communicate exactly how assemblies come apart and go together, and in SOLIDWORKS 2019, creating and editing exploded views is even easier.
- A new rollback bar is available when working with exploded views. This new rollback bar works just like the rollback bar in the feature manager, and can be dragged up and down the tree to help users visualize an explode sequence step by step.
- Explode steps can now be reordered directly in the configuration manager, adding even more flexibility. As you edit your exploded view, the rollback bar remains in position in the property manager and any new explode steps are added above. Explode steps can also be named upon creation, eliminating the extra step of having to edit the name after the fact.
- In addition to reordering Explode steps can now be suppressed as well as deleted, and this suppression is available outside of the edit mode in the configuration manager making creating and editing a breeze.
- Creating explode steps can be very beneficial on drawings, but nothing beats an animation, and now SOLIDWORKS 2019 supports more video file formats. Flash, MKV and MP4 formats can now be published directly from the exploded view animation controller or with SOLIDWORKS Motion Manager/Animator.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, well then, an animation must be worth 10 times that. And with the new tools to work with exploded views in SOLIDWORKS 2019 creating this content is easier than ever.
