FreeCAD workbench to create exploded views and animations of assemblies.

Note. This workbench has been migrated to a new repository: ExplodedAssembly


  • Create nice explosions of assemblies graphically (no code at all!)
  • Create sub-exploded groups
  • Give rotation to screws and nuts for realistic disassembles
  • Use the provided auxiliary assembly tools to place your parts together
  • TODO feature: create trajectory from wires and sketches
