Curved Sheet Metal Flat Pattern

Hey everyone,


Just looking for some advice in regards to a sheet metal component.


I have a 3D model created from a loft, or alternatively a 3D sketch, but I'm having trouble turning either into a sheet metal component

I'm trying to create a flat pattern of the component in the attached file (similar to a tent). There's no base, just the 3 curved sides and the top.

I think the curves are causing the problems but I'm really not sure.


Ideally I'd like it as a single piece, folded about the little rectangle at the top, but even if I can just get the flat pattern of the curved edges it'd be fine.


Thanks for any help, suggestions or comments.
