Explode multi Body Part

Is this possbile?

I have a single part file with 20 bodies within and would like to view it exploded like you can in a standard assembly

Explode states are only available in assembly mode. Convert the bodies to parts and add the parts to an assembly.

 

In the part model tree you can select a body RMB-> Create Part from body. You will need to do this for each body you want to add to the assembly.

Create an assembly and then add the parts created from bodies.

Create the desired explode states in the assembly.

This was my only method. i just hoped there was an 'explode bodeis' command or something incoming. Its quite long winded for us creating parts from the bodies with obtian our part numbers etc.
