How to unfold a belt based on offset surface
Hello, I need to make a cut out drawing for laser cut for a part that have been done using an offset surface.
Can someone explain me how to achieve it.
One is rectangular, another one is circle.
I tried with Flex but never get it right.
I don't know how exactly to do it in Solid but in Inventor you have to make a cut (just like i think you did in the top middle of your profile) and proceed a command to unfold it, make sure the thickness of your part matches the rule thickness set.
Convert the part to sheet metal and then it will allow you to unfold it into the flat pattern you are looking for.
