Can anyone tell me how to explode an object? Where do I start in Layout? Do I apply dynamics to get this effect?
Thanks

If you have the object already broken up, yes you could "explode" with dynamics (e.g., wind). If not, break it up first with simple unweld (Ctrl-U) or a plug-in like C4 or CrackIt. I'd do a search on these forums - lots of info here.

Depends on what you want. Here is a video link to Newteks Hard-Body Dynamics that explodes objects by their part or surface names.
