Hi.
You don’t have to use “Unroll Brep” method for this. Try “Orient” instead…

Another option can be to use the nesting component from generation, although as it computes the nesting algorithm it can be quite slow,

Thank you a lot. :wink:
Both worked very well.is there a way for example rotate the slice axis by 90degrees? Just trying to figure out the possibilities.

Thank you
