How to flatten out a helical pattern


New member
Hello everyon!

I have a rotor with helical paterns of csys use to assemble

barnicles to the rotor skin. I need to flatten the pattern out to make a drawing table of the locations off the cordinate system in a flat state.

Does anyon know how to retrieve x,y,z cordinate locations from a helical pattern?
