      Is it possible to create plate developments in the free-version of DS?

      Last week someone gave me a link to DS software.
      Yesterday I used to insert my drawings (very rough,just to try out), with help of the tutorial.
      Everything went good, the tutorial is very clear.
      Only after page 14 it is finished. I can’t find a help for creating a plate development.
      When I select “view” the line “plate developments…” doesn’t react.

      And that is the point I wanted to use this program for.

      I am intended to make a model (scale 1:25)
      of a dump hopper barge. using copper(messing) plate.

      When the model is finished I use it to transport the soil from the steam powered bucket dredger model, that I am making from a drawing dated 1932.

      Can someone give me advise?
      Or isn’t it possible with the program I use now?

      Best regards Harm.
      Dordrecht, the Netherlands.

      Go to the layerproperties window and specify which layers should be unfolded. By default they are all off.

      Thanks for answering so quickly.

      I found the place to choose “developable”

      I will continue with this marvelous program.
