Please help me to flatten the 4 sides of this part

Hi guys and girls,

I'm completely self taught and because of this, I think I do things the hard way, or at least not the correct way when making parts on Solidworks.

I've been designing a wing for a customer's small Jet-Boat, and now he is happy with it, we need to fabricate it.

Only problem is, I cannot flatten the curved surfaces of the Extruded Boss I have made on Solidworks.

The 4 surfaces need to be flattened so we can CNC cut the parts.

I'm using Solidworks 2013, and as far as I'm aware it doesn't have the flatten surface function.


Can someone please download this file, flatten the 4 sides for me and then send it back as a DXF or DWG?

And/or tell me the method for flattening the surfaces of this part?


Any help would be much appreciated. And I hope this isn't a big ask, to me it seems like this could be done reasonably quickly by someone with a much better knowledge of this program than me
