How to unfolded a curve shell
I have a question
I am making a shell in Alias.
There's some hole cutting on it.
The thing is that, right now I need to make the real shell by a sheet metal.
So the way would be that I get the sheet metal and draw the hole it, cut it and fold it to my shell.
The problem is that I design the hole based on the curve shell.
But how I can get the right pattern when the sheet metal is flat. and
also the shape of the hole.
Later when I folded it, the shape of the sheet metal and the hole will match my design.
I build the model in Alias 3D software, and also solidworks.
Is there any way I can get it when it's flat, and the pattern of the hole and shape?
