how to flatten a cone
Hello, 

I wonder how I can flaten a cone? I need this to create a cutting guide.

Is it possible at all in KC ?

RE:how to flatten a cone
By "flatten" do you mean unwrap?  There's a function for that.

I've tried Tool>Extract>Flat pattern but the end result is not correct. It looks like KC is flatening only half of the cone.

Hmmm, yes, it's been awhile since I've used the unwrap function but I recall there were some issues.  As I recall the unwrapped geometry was correct but incomplete.  I think I played with flipping geometry around or something to get the missing portions, then fit it all together.

Francis,
I'm send you email with video on how to use the FLATPIPE.CDE  I cannot attach here.  It will unwrap cones & cylinders.
