    For those who don't subscribe to the Papermodels Google Group --

    I corrected the link from the original post so I didn't need to quote the whole thread...

    For some reason the link in your post goes to the Smustard page instead of the Scriptspot page when I click on it.
    The following looks like the same as the one in the quote in your post, but seems to go to the Scriptspot page. Strange indeed. :???:

    I got the script and used it a little. I like it a lot better than pepakura because you have infinitely more control over how something unfolds but it has some trouble unfolding cylinders and cones, I finally started unfolding my sexton with it.

    I fixed my fix of The Haggards post to avoid confusion. It used my "updated" link as text within his original URL tags....

    Wierd software we got for this board... :D

    Very nice, and just in time -- I was just wondering how to unfold Sketchup models, and up pops this tool!

    One problem, the orientation of any 'materials' applied changes as the unfold progresses. Neat plug-in though, very handy!
