Exploded view of a product is used in the applications for understanding the intricate details of the assembly. The problem with all the present-day CAD software packages is that the reconciliation of the product assembly from the exploded view is performed inaccurately wherein the parts collide with one another and the original assembly is not regained back through collision free path thereby leading to non-optimal performability of the software package. This present work proposes an efficient process for successfully generating the exploded view for assemblies through collision free paths, so that the reconciliation of product assembly from exploded view is accurate. The technique adopted here is based on the assembly coherence data and disassembly feasibility testing and is proposed in the context of a computer aided geometric assembly of a knuckle joint and internal combustion engine connecting rod assembly.
