I am a newbie in solidworks and still learning. I do have a query to make. Basically, the company were I am working is engage in Passive Fire Protection (Jacket) we do protect pipes, equipments, etc... Now, I was wondering if Solidworks has the capability of doing a flat pattern from 3D objects like what the sheet metal is doing before they bend the sheet metal.


have attach an image for a clearer understanding on what I am referring too.
