I know there is the Tools, Composite, Fabric Flat Pattern, but that is non-parametric.
Is there a parametric way to flatten fabrics, ie carbon fiber?
Back in the olden days, the flat pattern tool, had an option for metal, or fabric, etc. I don't recall if it was parametric or not.
Metaform has always been a difficult one for me to get to function, I used it so rarely.
How do other flatten fabrics?
We compared the non-parametric fabric flat pattern, to the Falttening and Forming result, and they were obviously different. This is what sparked the question regarding a parametric "fabric" option.
Is it possible to specify split lines in a shape to flatten. For example, on a dome could weld lines be specified to allow for less part deformation. When the part is flatten these weld lines would be the edges of the flat.
