Kronal Vessel Viewer (KVV) - Exploded ship view

28,779 Downloads Last Updated: Apr 3, 2016 Game Version: 1.0.4

Plugin that creates blue-print-like images (into your <KSP Root>Screenshots/ directory) from the KSP Editor (VAB/SPH).  Now with Control Dials & GUI Button (bottom right Corner Labeled 'KVV') thanks to /u/El_Padina.  As featured in Scott Manley's Video.

Once the panel is up click 'Part Config' button and check the items you wish to 'explode apart' or 'Offset'.  Once you've checked 'Offset checkboxes' and you enter a value between 3 and 0.1 (3(or higher)-0.1(minimum) click the 'Offset View' button.  Once you have set your configuration settings you can toggle the broken apart view by clicking 'Offset View' and 'Revert' buttons respectively.

If you are 'Exploded/Offset' the Save & Exit buttons are disabled.  Ensure that you click 'Revert' so that you can Save/Exit the Editor.
