How do you do this?  To show layers in 3-d view exploded for detail draings at a scale of 3" = 1'? 

 

Same goes to cabinets?  how do you explode these for detail drawings?

You can't explode Revit modeled elements.  I'm not following why you want to explode it to detail?  If you are trying to make it have seperate layers you can click on the wall and use the Create Parts tool, but be careful once you use this command you cannot change it back to a single wall.

You have to use "Parts" : http://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2014/ENU/?guid=GUID-FF4B3E7D-0804-4EE4-9384-C78255B5480C

You need to watch the video I pointed to again and be creative in your thinking. 

 

Parts allow you to partially hide portions of layers of a wall, for instance, in a view to reveal sub layers .... exactly what you want.

CinnamonBird,

 

You keep reposting your last post so I keep deleting it.  I believe we have answered your question unless you have a new one.

My final attempt at explaining this to you.

Watch the youtube video below, it explains how to divide your wall into parts and adjust the layers.

If you still don't get, I suggest you just model it in SketchUp. Although it's really not that hard in Revit.
