With ‘Explode’, composite objects are exploded into individual elements. Composite elements are, for example, polylines, blocks, hatches or grouped elements.
Explode can be used on many types of elements: Texts, hatches, even dimension lines can be exploded into their individual components.
If a spline is exploded, the resulting contour is a polyline composed of smaller elements.
Some special ‘Explode commands are also available. Select the drop-down under ‘Explode’ to access these special commands.
