generative modeling for Rhino
Uses the Rhino Unroll command in order to unroll surfaces or polysurfaces - result is not always what you need :)

thats nice, can you provide some examples?
Thank you so much for this. My geometry uses lots of bent plywood sheets and I needed a way to unbend/unroll multiple breps and lay out for cnc machining and laser cutting. Hugely helpful.
Glad it was useful!
Wow! thanks... This is working incredibly. I can even unroll a number of breps at the same time... But is there a way to make them unroll in a specific place? say right next to the surface they belong to?
I organized on a grid each of a series of parts that make up a sort of blob, and its way important that i correctly attribute the respective I.D. tag.
thanks in advance.
I did it!!! and i am terribly happy. Since I had arranged the parts (not unfolded) in a grid with corresponding text, I plugged the new unfolder BEFORE organizing (orienting) the parts and it honors the same order.
could you tell me a little about how you put together the unfold command?
It is just calling the Unroll Command from Rhino. Therefore the unroll behaves similarly as the rhino unroll.
