Can I get a 3D model of the flat Sheet metal?

quincy_paynequincy_payne Member Posts: 2
I am looking to make a quick part of 3d printed TPU and would need to edit a flat model of a sheet metal design. Is there a way to get the flat model of the sheet metal into a part studio to then continue editing?

    Using the feature script got me the result I was looking for, thank you!

    Wow, this Feature Script is a kludge work around for obtaining a flat pattern at all on an iPhone. In a mobile browser I can see the flat pattern and select it then invoke this command. Can the script be modified to output a flat pattern directly from a 3D sheet metal model into a flat sketch? Then I could invoke it usefully directly in the Onshape app.

    Please try the latest version - it handles 3d selection
