Pyramid with curved faces

Hello there,

I am currently struggling with something. I hope my english won’t be too bad for understanding.

I need to make an object which looks like this :

This is two curved faces that perfectly matches. The faces are cut by a plan (orange in this picture) :

To craft this object, i need to cut planks with a CNC machine. So I need to get a precise 2D plan for cutting before bending.

I’m pretty sure of the next document :

From there I’ve got questions :

  1. When you craft a rectangle-based pyramid with the top cutted, the faces shapes are trapeziums. If the faces are curved (in this scenarion), are the face still trapeziums in a 2D shape ?

  1. Is there a pluging that allows to “unbend” a curved face to a 2D surface (basically what I need).

Thanks for reading and helping me !


You could try Unwrap and Flatten from the Extension Warehouse. It’s designed specifically for that sort of thing.

Turn on ‘Hidden Geometry’ to see what is going on. It helps to see how you would need to rotate flat the sections.

You could try flattery. I was meaning to try it but haven’t got around to it.

Thanks guys,

The “Unwrap and Flatten” worked like a charm !
