In our customer surveys, we’ve noticed the importance of creating exploded views, particularly for manufacturing assembly instructions and user manuals. For some, creating exploded views can be an extremeley tedious–and ultimately costly–process. However, Composer’s explode tools make the process of making these views instantaneous and intuitive.

With Composer, pre-programmed explode tools let you move multiple parts at one time while simultaneously positioning them at incremented distances apart from one another, instantly producing a professional-looking view. Moreover, if you have to make an adjustment, you can simply use the linear translation tool to get your view exactly how you want it.
