Hello guys,

 

Tryed to search it, but didn't find.

 

Well we are using a lot of sheet metal for augers and I never had problems with their flat pattern.

 

But now we decided to test a auger made from rod, and I can't make flat patter for this. I attach the part.

 

I saw a lot of exampes to sketches merged with lofted bend, but this here doesnt work, because its a rod.

 

If someone could help me, would be cool....

 

Tomorrow i will try to use something like this with convert sheet metal:
