You can use the import utility with the INDEXFILE parameter (see imp help=y) to create a file with the database structure. For example:

exp scott/tiger@ORCL file=exp.dmp log=exp.log owner=SCOTT --this will create a export file with the schema SCOTT

imp scott/tigger@TEST_DB file=exp.dmp log=imp.log SHOW=Y INDEXFILE=STRUCTURE.TXT --this won't import the data, but will show the contents of the export file into the log file (imp.log) and will create a file with the structures (STRUCTURE.TXT).
