unfold unusable

Question

Hi Everyone, 

 

I really need to flat pattern some 3D objects to create some custom graphics, but the unfold command isn't working for me...

When I use it, the surfaces are in seemingly random orientation, and not attached or next to eachother (more of an "explode" command). Is there a way to make this tool actually UNFOLD my object?

 

Thanks

No, they always detach - I find it useful to color-code more complex surfaces before unfolding

Some stoopid workarounds:

Thru cut text or holes in corners, or edge notches to identify and orient the flattened elements. 

 

Use Extract tool to capture the flatten each surface individually. 

 

This unfold command is long overdue for update
