Is there anyway to take a circular part and stretch it flat?

I am working on designing a sliding part that is flat that would have teeth to be moved by a worm (boss just loves worms.) I have a gear that works in an additional part with the worm that has been designed. I just can't get a linear design that works. So I was wondering if solid works has a way turning a circular object into linear.

Taking a different approach of just copying each tooth and drawing it in manually. Thanks to everybody who answered.
