Is there a way to unbend a revolved wall feature if you dont have a flat surface reference? I have a pipe with flanged end that I need a flat pattern for...





Thanks!

Hi,


when you are asked for fixed geometry you could pick plane or edge!!


So you have to chose edge.Usually the one which you sketched.

it is a revolve so there is no flat plane or edge. there is a formed end but still no straight edge or flat plane that itwill accept.

some revolve flanges that i have done in the pasthave required bend relief


"it is a revolve so there is no flat plane or edge"


you need a rip otherwise why would you want a flat pattern


"there is a formed end but still no straight edge or flat plane that itwill accept."


you may need to do it, using a quilt. maybe i am not understanding what you are trying to do. put a picture or a file, that way you may get more correct responds
