How to get a flat pattern for the top deck of a curved surfboard model

brad_phelanbrad_phelan Member Posts: 85 ✭✭
I have the following surfboard model


The top deck is a developable surface. ie: it is bent in only one direction. 


I want to be able to generate a drawing of the top deck, but flattened so I can send it to a CNC router or laser cutter to cut out the wood for the top deck.I will then bend the top deck over a frame to generate the correct shape.

However I can't for the life of me figure out how to flatten the top surface out as required.
