"Flatten" Nurbs Surface

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I've been trying to write a CNC program for creating a "Crown." This requires me to "flatten" a Nurbs surface. Is there a way to do this?

I need a 2D pattern for my CNC to cut the lines I need.(I need to have the CNC cut the flat shape out of a 4'x8' sheet of wood).

I have looked in the reference books, but seem to have struck out.

I can email anyone a file with the curve in it, if you'd like to try.

Thanks very much

If this is a one time project, this is probably to expensive, but check out TouchCAD and Touch-3D. These are by the Swedish VW dealer, Claes Lundstr?m.
