Approximate a Non-Gaussian surface?

I understand that Solidworks cannot create a flat pattern of a Non-Gaussian surface.

Is there a way to approximate a complex surface with a series of flat facets?

I'm looking for an automated way approximating my model so that I can get it made in sheet metal.

Errors between model and approximation are acceptable and expected.
