Do not trust the Unfold Surfaces command

Recommended Posts

See the attached file.

I have found that VW Unfold Surfaces command can only be used with simple basic 3D-shapes. Anything else give a distorted result.


Unfolding a simple cylinder produces the expected result, a rectangular.

Unfolding the same cylinder but now with cutouts also produce not the expected result. This should off course be a rectangular with cutouts, but it is ... something else.

Maybe someone can check if VW10 gives the correct flattened shape?
