I'm modeling a truss that is made of pipes.

There are main big pipes, and smaller ones that are welded to the big ones in an angle.

The a smaller ones are cut to shape at the end in order to fit exactly to the big ones.


I need to produce a 2D drawing of the end of the pipe so the CNC machine can cut it.

Actualy I need to "unfold" the pipe and then make a drawing.


I'm attaching a part file (SW VER14). see that the small pipes are already have a slot so they can be unfolded.

My question is.

How do I do it?
