    Flat pattern from a spherical section

    Omar Freites

      Hi there,

       

      I´m designing a spherical tank for GLP storage, and have had some problems:

       

      I am using Swept Flange Tool for creating each spherical shell as you can see in the picture below:

       

       

      Is this the most efficient modelling way if i have to generate a flat pattern after (workshop drawings)?

      I know that is not possible flatten a spherical piece (without deformation). But, what about forming tools deduction / surface flatten tool, how could use these as workaround?

      Some suggestion?

       

      Thanks in advance
