Exploded view drawing

Good morning,
I would like to ask some questions for using Rhinoceros to create “Exploded view drawing” for Spare Parts Catalogs.
I would like to have some instructions about how to create exploded views: in particular if it is necessary to explode the various blocks at the upper level before getting to select the desired component.
Also if there is a “Find” command to select a component by searching the P / N.
Thank you for the support.

Hi -

If you are dealing with blocks, you will have to explode them, yes.

Depending on how you have organized your model, you can either find objects by their Name or, perhaps, use SelKeyValue if you have assigned key-value pairs in the attribute user text.
