I m looking a way to automate the process of unrolling curves in one direction.
I give below an example and i have also attached the 3dm file.unroll_crv_1d.3dm (60.9 KB)
The original curves are shown below.
The goal is to unroll them on the Z-axis:
What i manually do is to take the intersection points and split the curves:
Then i measure the length of each segment of the blue lines and create a 1-D line .
Finally i connect the end points of each segment with the longitudinal curves (red)
As this process is very time-consuming to perform it manually, a python script would be the perfect solution.
Any help/advise is highly appreciated.
Thank you in advance
