Render with Explode Lines

All,

I'm exporting some exploded views out of Pro/E for a spare parts list for our marketing guys. I prefer to render all images for export out of Pro/E because the end result just looks so much nicer. However, I would like to retain the explode lines that I've set up in my images. When I render the exploded view, the explode lines disappear. Any ideas as to how I can either a) show the explode lines in my render, or b) get Pro/E to show a render-quality shaded image without using rendering?

I'm on WF5, M060.

Thanks,
Tim

Hey Tim,


Model them as tinly cylinders and apply color and texture. If you are using Photolux, the sky is the limit. You could make them glow! Think the marketing guys will like that? 🐵


Seriously, create a pattern of your explode lines and during the Explode state move them where you need them. Render up with the quality, color,transparency etc...you need and presto! Instant Magic.
