How to flatten a curved surface in Solidworks?

Hey guys,

Is there a way I can flatten a surface in solidworks 2013? I have a curved surface and i would like to get a flat pattern so I can laser cut it.

Thank you in advance!

The question asks "Is there a way I can flatten a surface in solidworks 2013" The answer is for SolidWorks 2015. Not very helpful for us using 2013 that do not have that new feature.

Here you go. A dxf flat-pattern that you can re-import to 2010 and work on it.
