Sometime while working with exploded assembly views, it can be nightmarish to create the desired view on the Solidworks drawing as seen in the exploded model graphics window. For this matter, NAMED VIEWS can come to a rescue.
To create a desired NAMED VIEW while working for exploded views, following steps need to be taken:
- First create a desired exploded assembly view that you want to see on your drawing, edit exploded steps if necessary.
- Press the SPACE BAR to bring the Orientation Menu screen
- Click New View in the Orientation dialog box. Create a NAMED VIEW.
It is also advisable to save the named view in SOLIDWORKS as well, if you want this view to be available for other documents. This can bring consistency in exploded views for assemblies of similar type.
