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?

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.
