» Cross-Section & Exploded View Illustrations & Assembly Drawings «

This portfolio page contains illustrations that were done in the exploded view or exploded isometric style of technical drawing, where the exterior shell of a product or piece of machinery and all of its internal parts or components are "exploded" or moved away from each-other so that they are floating in space on the correct perspective plane. These technical drawings can be done in perspective view or in exploded isometric view, and are typically connected by construction lines that provide a visual cue as to their original locations or assembly points.

The exploded view style of technical drawing or assembly drawing - also referred to as a breakaway drawing - is especially well suited for product diagrams showing that basic assembly of the subject, and are typically used in assembly instruction manuals. They can also be used in advertising materials as a stylistic approach that deviates from the traditional cut away view. To see how these exploded illustrations are created please check out our latest line drawing and ellipse tutorials.
