I sure wish there was one, it would make development of 3d objects into flat
patterns for cutting very easy. Id be very interested to know if you find a
way of doing this, but Ive never seen or heard of it
I've seen things for unwraping solids for pattern cutting - and some
of them are very good. In a way, my problem is simpler. I just want to
produce a straight line of the same overall length as my polyline, and
- crucially - with 'endpoints' in the same relative positions along
the line. This can be done manually, by exploding the line and then
listing the length of each segment - whether straight or curved, but
that's going to be a little tedious for this particular polyline!
Perhaps the solution is to try making a surface from the line and then
browse around for some pattern forming software - I'll give that a
Once again, any other thoughts appreciated.
