Hi,

 

I know SolidWorks wont unfold parts that curve in two directions and you need an add on program to be able to do this.

 

Out of interest what is the best bit of software out there to unfold parts that curve in more than one direction?

 

I have heard that Rhino can do this, but I am looking for something to works with SolidWorks although the files wont always be SolidWorks part files they may be IFC or IGES or STEP files so what's out there that can open up various file types and flatten parts?

 

Thanks

 

Mark (SolidWorks 2018 sp2)
