Q - question

How to Explode a ViewBase generated from a 3D model?

A - answer You have used the command VIEWBASE to create a view/projection of a 3D model and now you need the explode this automatically generated view and edit the resulting 2D drawing.

The standard command EXPLODE does not work on the objects of the type "Drawing View". But you can export the whole layout to a separate DWG drawing file (with the command EXPORTLAYOUT). In this file, the individual views are now just plain block references (e.g. "CustomObjectsInViewport7_0") - these blocks can be exploded to simple entities like Line, Arc, etc. and you can edit this geometry. Of course it is no more associative (unlike the Drawing view) with the original 3D model.
