I suppose you are using AutoCAD. There is no need to explode the polylines to lines in order to see the dashed lines in print. If you have the dashed lines visible properly in the modelspace, you can just try changing the value of PSLTSCALE system variable. Try setting its value to 0.5,0.25 etc and refresh(regen) the paperspace.
