Unroll developable surface in Grasshopper?

Which options are there in Grasshopper?
This week I was offering a training at a sailmaker company which also manufactures sprayhoods. As I was playing to automate the process, this is one of my questions.
Also the option to unroll curves on the developable surface is needed here.

You can use a C# script. I found it in this forum.

Open the GH definition below while your Rhino file is open. I set the surface with the curves for you.
