The exploded objects cannot be reverted back to the original group.
a nested assemblyassembly that consists of several assemblies on many assembly levels
Nested assemblies include elements that are manufactured as sub-assemblies.
, Tekla Structures breaks the assembly hierarchyarrangement of assemblies that describes the manufacture and erecting of the actual assembly to be built
level by level, always starting from the highest level. You need to use the Explode command several times to break a nested assembly back to single parts.
You can also explode sub-assemblies to single parts without breaking the entire assembly hierarchy.
- Select the assembly or sub-assemblyassembly in a nested assembly that is subordinate to a parent assembly
you want to explode.
- Do one of the following:
To explode the entire assembly, right-click and select Assembly > Explode.
To only explode the sub-assembly, right-click and select Assembly > Explode Sub-Assembly.
