Need Help Flattening Voronoi Pattern on a Cylinder for Plotting

Hello everyone,

I’m quite new to Rhino and Grasshopper and am currently facing a challenge that I hope you can help me with. I’ve successfully created a Voronoi pattern on a cylindrical surface using Grasshopper. Now, I need to flatten this pattern onto a 2D plane so I can use a plotter to cut it out.

The patterns are defined by curves that were generated from the intersection of a Brep | Brep component. I’m struggling to figure out how to unroll or flatten these curves onto a 2D plane effectively.

Could anyone guide me through the process or suggest any techniques to achieve this? Any tips or tutorials that could help a beginner would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

OpenNest (Available on _PackageManager) has a component for that:

Great! Thank you!

It would be perfect if the pattern was not interrupted by a cut but the cells remained whole.
do you think this is possible?
