Project/Unfold cylinder

This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
Hello,

I want to cut out some holes from a sheet of metal and fold it to a cylinder afterwards.
In my model i've got a cylinder as a base which i want to unfold now.
Has anyone an idea how to do this?

Sorry, no idea how to unfold a cylinder. You may get some visibility after this post gets to the list.

Google pepakura. It is a tool for converting 3d models to foldable paper craft designs. I have never used it but it sounds like it might be useful for what you want.
