When creating a new Exploded view of an assembly what controls the default explode behavior ? What I am really after is a setting to be able to define quickly how far the toggle explode setting ripples through a Model Tree.
For example 9 time out of 10 on large assemblies it would be nice to be able to say explode 1 level deep only. That way only the parts at the first level have there explode status set to explode and everything else is set to no. It can be very time consuming hunting down the one component that has it's status set to yes in a model of 1000's of parts.
The default explode only moves top level entities, though the default is never good.
When creating an explode state, there are no settings to limit explode to top level parts/subassemblies. You just have to be careful to pick only top level items. That can be done through query selection or model tree selection.
Would be a nice addition to add a check box under Options to limit selection to top level items and have it selected by default. I would support this as an Idea in the forum.
