Exploded view technical illustrations give guidance on assembly and construction. This often looks complicated but if the drawing is studied and focus on a sections of the illustration, it often becomes clear and informative.
The first illustration of a ship was commissioned to help explain the location of the major elements in a floating Gas processing plant (FLNG).
The next illustration is a typical example of an engineering exploded view illustration. Showing parts and labelling to aid assembly and repair.
Next is a good example of exploding layers, moving them apart to reveal more detail, and help to separate each layer for clarity. This is especially helpful with realistic drawings, to give a clear picture of the subject.
The penultimate example is a subtle use of ghosting to help illustrate stages in an exercise.
And finally the last exploded view technical illustration shows a more complex drawing to illustrate the parts and their fitting locations.
