SOLIDWORKS Simulation plot graphical changes (such as isolate, hide/show, exploded views) are not updated automatically. The plot that was visible before the change remains visible after the change unless additional steps described below are followed. This is due to the fact that the results data loads based on the original view state, the plot must be refreshed. There are three separate methods of regenerating a SOLIDWORKS Simulation plot after a graphical change has been made.

Simulation plot after isolating the connecting rod, but before regenerating the plot.
Right-click the desired plot then select Edit Definition. Now click the green checkmark to update to the Simulation plot based on the current graphics.
Right-click the plot of your choice then click the hide option. Now right-click the same plot and click show. This will update the Simulation results based on the current graphical data.
The quickest of the three methods is to activate a different plot and then return to the original plot.
