Hi all


I have a part created in sheet metal, but the actual flat pattern should be different.

imagine having a plate with a lot of machining, but you also need to have the stock material laser cut.


So, attached simple part have the default config, which is the one I need to machine.

The Flat Pattern configuration is the stock I need to order.


Reason I want this to be a true flat pattern is because I use CUSTOMTOOLS to create the DXF files from parts where configuration is flat pattern.


So I can't have multiple configurations - it should act like a normal sheet metal part, and when I flatten it, the block shape would be displayed.

Also, the thickness is different as you will notice, and it is the thickness of the block I need.


Let me know if this can be done !
