Figure 1: A static 2D exploded view diagram of a master cylinder (left). We construct an interactive version of the
diagram using our system. These three frames show the user interactively expanding a portion of the object to examine
it in more detail (right).
We present a system for creating interactive exploded
view diagrams using 2D images as input. This image-
based approach enables us to directly support arbitrary
rendering styles, eliminates the need for building 3D
models, and allows us to leverage the abundance of ex-
isting static diagrams of complex objects. We have devel-
oped a set of semi-automatic authoring tools for quickly
creating layered diagrams that allow the user to spec-
