UNWRAP huge facet body for 4-axis milling and WRAP toolpath

Solution Partner Phenom Solution Partner Phenom

How you can generate 4-axis toolpath for HUGE facet body (imported STL, 320 Mb binary file)? Just see a video!!
I build one UGOPEN application to UNWRAP "cylindrical" STL to "PLANAR" STL, I do it without import STL into NX, just working with input file and output new unwrapped stl to another file and after this recalculation - import STL to NX.
Then - generate 3 axis FIXED CONTOUR operation.
And - WRAP this toolpath to source STL.
Thats all.

Good job. But source facet body and unwrapped have a little differences.
