NX10 exploded views

NX10 exploded views

NX10 exploded views

I have a co-worker, who is a new NX user, and created an exploded view in the model file.
He renamed and saved the view, and tried to import the view into his drawing (master model is being used here), with the view wizard, and when that saved view is imported it comes into his drawing as un-exploded.
Is there a trick with importing exploded views into a drawing ?
It has been several years since I worked with exploded views.
We are on NX10.

RE: NX10 exploded views

The explosion probably isn't saved in the view your importing.
Or it would be there.

As a rule
* View "Save As"
* "Orient View" to the one you just saved. (This makes it the active view)
* Create explosion

You can try importing all of the other available views one at a time.
It'll be in one of them.

The exploded view must be created in the drawing, you can't explode a view in the model file and import it to the drawing.

eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
