So I'm not too familiar with Inventor, but I'm working on a project for some people and I'm using Inventor 2011. I basically made a box with some exterior parts on it in an assembly and now they want certain things inside that box. My plan is to use a work plane offset with the side of the box and extrude it a certain distance to hollow the box out but keep all 6 sides. Then, I will either assemble or constrain the new part on the interior of the box.
Firstly, will this work? And secondly, if I do this, can I see an exploded view of the interior components to show that there is something inside of it? I remember playing around with the exploded views once, but we used boxes with doors, basically, so the door would come off and then everything inside would come out. Will it work if this piece is inside a box with no movable panels?
