    How do I keep the parts aligned in correct plane in an exploded view. Using the Auto Explode just kinda puts them in some random places. Clicking and dragging them around just moves them freely. I want to be able to sort of lock several degrees of freedom so that they move in "plane"

    It almost seems like i need to create an "exploded" configuration in my model???

    The original constraints will influence the direction of explosion for each item.

    Manual explode used with the triad gives good control over the direction that parts move in. The initial click on a face will position the triad, you then select which axis to drag along. To re-position triad, click in empty space, then on face of next item.

    You can add more than one exploded view...
