Expected ETA on exploded Views

ryerye Member Posts: 4 PRO
Hi, Just wondering when we can expect the delivery of OEM Exploded View integration from Onshape?

I read somewhere before the end of the year? Recently watched an onshape video from 2017 detailing different methods for creating exploded views but was not happy with the functionality of any of the options so have put off developing an exploded view for our really large assembly.

I will have to bite the bullet unfortunately soon unless it will be released, is there an ETA on this? the method of branching doesn't actually support assemblies with many sub assemblies, as first you need to copy and paste and delete the assembly to have a flat BOM/assembly which removes the release management revision updates from the original sub assemblies as they are no longer present in the assembly.

    No Pressure @Paul_J_Premakumar but I am also putting off doing exploded views in the hope the native solution will be here soon. However, I do appreciate that the final solution will be free of bugs and to the highest of standards and best bit will be, being able to use it straight after release without any install. It will just my luck that explodes are released a week after I bite the bullet and do it the old workaround way.
