Represents the operation of Rhino's unrolling.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
BrepBrpBrep to unrollBrep
CurvesCrvsOptional curves to follow the unrollCurve
PointsPtsOptional points to follow the unrollPoint
ExplodeExpExplode output geometryBoolean
SpacingSpcIf explode is true, sets the value of spacingNumber
Absolute toleranceaTolSets the absolute tolerance for the unrolling operation. Absolute tolerance is used in the evaluation of new entities, such as intersections, reprojections and splits. In the current implementation, absolute tolerance is used in tessellating rails, fitting curves and pulling back trims.Number
Relative tolerancerTolSets the relative tolerance for the unrolling operation. Relative tolerance is used in the evaluation of intrinsic properties, such as computations "along" the surface or brep. In the current implementation, relative tolerance is used to decide if a surface is flat enough to try to unroll. That helps ease the scale dependency. The surface has to be linear in one direction within (length * RelativeTolerance) to be considered linear for that purpose. Otherwise smash will ignore that tolerance and unroll anything.Number
