Unroll a polysurface (Brep) so its faces lay flat on a plane, with the options to unroll points and curves along with the polysurface (Brep) faces. Can also unroll surfaces.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
PolysurfacePsPolysurface (Brep) or surface to unrollBrep
PlanePlOptional plane to unroll to, if no plane is set the world XY plane is usedPlane
PointsPOptional points to unroll with the polysurface (Brep) or surface, points should lay exactly on the polysurface (Brep) faces or surfacePoint
CurvesCOptional curves to unroll with the polysurface (Brep) or surface, curves should lay exactly on the polysurface (Brep) faces or surfaceCurve
ExplodeEOptional number which will explode the unrolled polysurface (Brep) faces as a disconnected linear array spaced apart by the amount of the number, unrolled points and curves will followNumber
Area ToleranceaTolerance for the allowable surface area deviation that determines if the polysurface (Brep) or surface can be unrolled (if omitted document tolerance is used)Number
Edge ToleranceeTolerance for the allowable surface edge deviation that determines if the polysurface (Brep) or surface can be unrolled (if omitted document tolerance is used)Number

Outputs
