Exploded assembly

Postby doul » Sun Feb 21, 2021 3:21 pm

Hello all !

FreeCAD can made assembly with several workbench like A2plus, Assembly 3 and Assembly 4, you can also explode them with the addon workbench Exploded Assembly, let's try it :)

First example : An welded assembly made with A2plus workbench

As your original post sounds as if all of this was done in A2plus: The model was assembled with A2plus. The explosion was made with addon workbench "Exploded Assembly".

It wasn't clear, I'm so confused :oops:

First assembly is an A2plus assembly, second not, Fasteners workbench automatically place screws when a hole edge is selected.

Would I've to edit first post ?

You don't have to, you can if you want.
Edited to clarity.

Rework of second example on post #1, added some colors, fixed placement and size nut mistake, correct bend radius for 10mm thickness and test of screw special group.
