I am trying to export a file from revit to dxf, with no blocks in the DXF file. The Linked model always exports as a block, how do I avoid that?

Huh?  Your exporting to dxf but you don't want to export the link to dxf?  Doesn't make sense.

I would like to export the model, including the linked model, without the linked model turning into a block.

Since there are no links in dxf, I think you will have to bind the link, explode the resulting group, then delete that group defition from the model.

What I am trying to do is export a plan from Revit to a DXF, including the linked file, and the resulting file is a DXF with no blocks. I understand that I can go into the DXF and explode the blocks, but I am trying to avoid having to do that.

Do you work in Revit.   I said nothing about exploding blocks.  There is no such thing as a link in a dxf file!  So you have to either remove the link completely in Revit or do what I wrote earlier.   The explode is in REVIT!   Read THIS

I think what he means is the views and titleblocks and other things on a revit sheet are seperate links within the dxf. When you export to dwg you have the option when saving the file to uncheck a box which to have all those things as xrefs and links or not (see image). When going to dxf this is greyed out. Might want to export to dwg first and then to dxf.

Lets see if I can explain this better in a different way. Our field layout techs need points from our models to layout gridlines, openings, edge of building... etc. We have a model of the building linked into a new Revit file, created only for layout point purposes, and we use Autodesk Point Layout to create those points.  The layout equipment uses DXF files, so we need to export our points to DXFs. But, the DXF file is not useable in the layout equipment if it has blocks in it. But, when we export a Revit file into a DXF, the points from the Layout model come in fine, but the linked model of the building comes in a big block. We are trying to avoid going into each of our exports and exploding that block. Any help with this would be greatly appriciated and save me some time.

Please re-read my second answer - that is your solution.
