    I was unable to find any 3D unfolding soft for Mac,
    except TOUCHCAD/TOUCH3D... Here's a link.

    Not free, nor even cheap.
    Is there a other unfolding soft for mac OS ?
    Ahem... I'll consider that replies like "use Windows" means "I don't know".

    Thanks! Very valuable info!

    I've never heard before unfolding functions were included into AMAPI.
    Gonna check around about it.
    This is an interesting information for sure.

    Have a nice day job, and plenty of long modeling evenings.

    Until now, I read some months ago in a French magazine that Amapi pro, (whose cost is equal to Rhino (for Windows only), needs at least a G4, but works better with a G5, and this is excessive: they reckon that the software needs improvements. I don't know how it is now, after updates.

    Amapi has had unfolding capabilities as far back at version 4 which I tried to learn back when I didn't have the "old dog" syndrome. However, I never could figure out how to get it to work well. Accidently unfolded a cylinder once, but never was able to duplicate the feat.

    Plus, I was using the PC version of the program which may or may not be the same in its MAC variety.

    I am unfolding models using pepakura under Virtual PC 7 on my MacMini with no problems. it is a "little" slower than my PC but not by so much as to be painful. I am also making the mess with Metesequa in Vitural PC until I become happy with something that is as free and easy on Mac OSx.
