Is it possible to use the surface flatten tool with the standard version of solidworks?
Only with SOLIDWORKS premium 2015 What's New in SOLIDWORKS - Flattening Surfaces
Thanks. That's what I was afraid of.
You can open the files containing the feature in Standard.
I wish it was available in all versions.
..yes, it would be nice... sad they did not make it standard.
fyi, it's something Rhino3D has had for many many many years... Unroll, Smash, Squish.. and some other tweaks.

Even better play with ExactFlat.

yes, it is. Write macro, API function works also in standard version
