I've got a problem and i hope that someone will have a sollution for it. When i export a sheet from revit to a dwg format  some of the elements are exported as block while others as normal lines ( for example. one column is exploded and others are blocks). Why does this happen and what can i do to change it in a way so that every element is exported as lines (exploded)?

When exporting a 2D view, all of the columns should be exported as blocks. You could do a QSelect in AutoCAD after to select all of the block entities at once and explode them but unfortunately it is not possible to modify that in Revit before exporting.

Ok i've found the solution to my problem after all.
You can modify that by checking 1 option in the family category and parameters, namely: always export as geometry. And that does the trick. After that , the family you check that option in will export as exploded.

Can you be more clear? I am having issues with Exporting a Structural floor plan from Revit (Same Universal column families with different sizes). Some come into Cad as blocks, others as lines!! There doesnt seem to be a logical answer....
