Simplify your assembly instructions by creating a series of Snapshots in time that represent important activities or areas of interest in a design. The list of snapshots can easily be used to create raster images or drawing views to document the entire assembly process. Use snapshots to create exploded drawing views to easily identify parts in a model.
- [Voiceover] We now have a couple storyboards created,…we've got camera set up for each,…and we're ready to look at snapshots.…Snapshots are just that,…they're a snapshot in time.…So I typically save my snapshots…until after I've tweaked components…and set up camera views the way I want,…because this will now allow me to quickly jump…to those views,…or create specific views that I can use…in drawing views later.…Let's take a look at how to create snapshots.…Let's go over to Storyboard 1,…and you'll notice that we can jump to the beginning…and we have a view here,…we can jump to the end and we have a view there as well.…
This is the view that I wanna create a snapshot of,…I think it's the most important version…of this specific storyboard.…It shows a good clear view of the parts that are…being removed,…and where they're gonna end up.…To create a new snapshot we can do two different things.…We can either go to the presentation tab,…under the Workshop panel,…and select New Snapshot view,…or we can right-click in the Graphics window…
