Exploding view in drawing using Frame Generator ?

I just upgraded from Inventor 2012 LT to Inventor 2013, and I have to say that I love the new features !

I am now making my frames with the Frame Generator. We usually give to the tradepersons a cutlist (a drawing of each member of the frame with the dimensions) that goes with the frame. Until now someone is doing it using AutoCAD, but I was wondering if it was possible to make an explode view of a frame on a drawing and add the dimensions.

Thank you in advance for any help.

You could use an .ipn (presentation file) to create the explosion and then detail it on a .idw (drawing file). Or, since each member is a part file, you could detail each member in inventor.
