Plate deployment in Solidworks (Plugin?)

Hi guys,

As I've search through the forums, i've read a lot of you guys have a similar problem which i'm running in to! Plate deployment in Solidworks. Currently Solidworks is able to do simple plate deployment, but you have to use sheet metal features! (Or is this improved in the 2008 release?)

I'm trying to get a deploy from a hull i'm working on. The transom, the deck and the side is what I'm searching for. I'm wondering if any of you guys know a plugin that handles this well.





(If anyone wonders why Solidworks, i'm an industrial product design student )

Fast Blank has a plug in for Solidworks and they advertised that it can be used for hull plating development, have a a look maybe it will work, but besides that I don't think is any plug in for that, aerohydro has an add on and can unfold surfaces.

You could also have a look at workshop by Formsys. They have a reasonably priced limited version that only does plate development. You will also need Maxsurf but again they have a reasonably priced limited version called Maxsurf/T that is limited to 3 surfaces. I dont know the price of the others but this combination from Formsys may be cheaper.
