    No such thing as "explode" for fundamental elements in Revit....except to export to dwg/dgn/dxf. Revit's perspective is a wall "exploded" isn't a wall and therefore "useless" as one. The export process will give you lines if lines are what you were really after.

        Ahmed,

        Put a yellow sticker note on your monitor saying: "I will never, ever explode a cad drawing in Revit" This will save you a whole lot of grief further down the track.

        Cheers,

          Offset of linear chain in Revit is two click operation and no need in trimming after that:
          Start Offset command, hover pointer over line chain, press Tab on the keyboard and then click the side that You want to offset.

            Exploding anything at anytime with any computer by any user, EVER will NOT save you one second of time. Take the advice you have been given over and over by many different members on this website. FORGET how things worked in AutoCAD. Revit is not ACAD!!!

                Just curious. How, exactly, does exploding a wall so you don't have to use offset and trim save you time in any program??

                  simply like this picture you can use pick line to create wall tool with thickness 0.05 so now i do not need to offset or trim because wall tool will do the task this is just as example what if i have complex ornamental i think the revit is quite missing some features never ever explode for example is one of missing feature to use or not recommended i do not like to work on line tools a lot i love working on massing and here by offset and trim remind me with old fashion autocad no matter i should listen to you advices because you are expert more than me and if i do not like that as all of you said maybe i shall back to any programme i love and wait for revit 2013 make magic change
