Subassembly Explode States propagate to higher levels

Subassembly Explode States propagate to higher levels

An explode state created in an assembly can be applied to an explode state in a higher level assembly that contains it.

For example, my top level assembly A contains subassembly B. I have an explode state created in subassembly B. I want to create an explode state in the top-level assembly A, and rather than translating and rotating the components in B again, I would like to apply B's explode state when defining the explode state in A.

Currently only the default explode state propagates to higher level assemblies.

This is already possible when using the Default Explode. When activating the default explode of the top level assembly, also the default explode of the subassemblies are triggered.

Tip 1: Existing exploded views can be saved as Default Explode, no rework has to be done.

Tip 2: The default exploded state on the top level can be saved under a different name. This way in combination with Tip 1, multiple exploded states can be transferred to the top level (via the Default Explode)

Of course it would be better if it was possible to choose which explode state you would like to use. And it would also be greate if multiple exploded states could be used directly on the top level, but at least this comment may provide a suitable workaround for now.
