Sheet Metal Model - Curved Surface
I started making a geometrically abstracted fire hydrant out of surfaces. I simplified the form with the intent of creating a sheet metal model and a flat pattern. BUUT The curved surfaces do not want to participate in the sheet metal model. (The green surfaces are all independent of the larger sections of the model - thought that might be a work around, by reducing complexity?)
I have done some searching in the forum, but can't seem to find an answer that will help me make progress with this project as it is currently modeled. I know there are limitation to the sheet metal model script, but I thought it would be able to flatten a constant curve between two parallel edges.
