    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi!
    Is anyone who could help me to unfold surfaces from a drawing that I have made. I want to make a RC boat.
    Thank you in advance!

    There are no tools in Autocad for unfolding surfaces. If you're a student, you can download Inventor which should be able to do this.

    Sorry but I don't use Inventor. There are videos on Youtube that will show you how to unfold surfaces, or you can post a question here, in the Inventor section: http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/forumd...odesk-Inventor

    Jochen at www.ant-ares.de, only for PEDIT3D has the VLX file. Not for ABD-ROLL.
    Could you make the unfold for me please? I have post the dwg file.

    There are some threads on CADTutor and other places on doing developments on cones, pipes, etc, if you want some old school unfolding practice.

    Hi Nick36
    sorry, was out this weekend.
    See the attachement with the unfolded side surfaces.
    Do you need the upper part too?
    And - yes you are right: from the ant-ares site you only can download the full version of PEDIT3D.
    Regards again fom good (c)old Germany
