I thought this would be simple, but I am not having luck.
I made a simple fuselage from a top and side view drawing of an airplane.
My end goal is to have a flat pattern of the top, bottom, left, right, and rear faces of this to trace onto 0.2" thick foam-board.
The closest way I can think of doing this now is using the offset surface command to put each face into a new part, giving it thickness, and adding a "flat" configuration to put into a drawing and print out to use for tracing/cutting.
However, this method does not allow for overlap correction ( which pair of faces is on the outside, or sandwiched inside) as easily as say the sheet metal tool does in solidworks.
Any ideas? I know there is a guru out there than can convert this thing into 5 pieces in a jiffy with flat pattern availability.
Is there a way to do this without altering the way my part was originally drawn?
Any help much appreciated!
