And to show my appreciation to you, I'd like to show you the video I was able to create with your workbench:

I'm part of the team that develops the possible second Hungarian satellite, SMOG-1 and I created this demo video to show the build up of the device.
The animation was purely run by python script, including the Exploded Assembly functions.

Hi Therman
can you share to us your animation code
much appreciated - thanks!

Awesome Workbench!

But i could not find a way to export a video file from the animation. Is there a known way?

Found a good solution. Downloaded OBS screen record tool. Unlocked drawing window and put it on my second monitor. Started the recording and afterwards started and ended recording from my first monitor.

I have posted another thread regarding automatic exploded view and I was told thatFreecad has Workbench.
I guess you already know about the Paper I refer to, nbit still I would like to mention it still. What do uou think about this and is it possible to implement in Workbench?
See link to thread below.

Is there any written documentation beyond the examples?
