How do I create a rolled out image?

I was wondering if it is possible to take a complex somewhat cylindrical part and create a rollout. Basically I want to take a part and create a projection onto a flat plane of the features on the outside diameter of the part. I'm assuming the same process for the inner diameter would be similar.

 

In other words, how do I create a projection to a flat plane?

 

I hope the pictures explain it better than I can. I want to take a model similar to the isometric view, then create something like the sketch I drew up in paint.Rollout Test Picture.JPGRollout Test flat.png
