Cutout patterns for bent (curved, not angled) sheets of plywood or aluminum?

Are there tools in OnShape for 'unbending' ? I want to generate patterns to cut out for a boat design, but I don't know how the curves I've generated could be flattened or even if they could be flattened.

Here's a bit of example geometery.

Sheet metal tools in OnShape don't really apply - that's for tabs and more or less right angle bends... this is much different. I'm sure somebody has dealt with this before but I'm stumped.
