Unfolding this object hangs formZ then puts up an error message. I have tried to use the mesh tool on it without success.

Hi Rafe,

This is being a bit stubborn, isn't it. We were able to get reasonable results if we first use the Polygon Mesh tool:

1

Then Unfold -- and UnMesh the result.

Does this help?

Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention, we will see if we can make this work better in the future.

I tried using mesh tool, but I set the size to 1/4". I guess I used the wrong tool.
