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?

Take a look at the flattening/forming capability introduced in NX 11:

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.
