Abstract
We present a system for creating and viewing interactive exploded
views of complex 3D models. In our approach, a 3D input model
is organized into an explosion graph that encodes how parts ex-
plode with respect to each other. We present an automatic method
for computing explosion graphs that takes into account part hierar-
chies in the input models and handles common classes of interlock-
ing parts. Our system also includes an interface that allows users to
interactively explore our exploded views using both direct controls
and higher-level interaction modes.

1 Introduction
Complex 3D objects, such as mechanical assemblies, electronic de-
vices, and architectural environments, are typically composed of
numerous parts. To convey the internal structure of such objects, il-
