I've been contacted by a local software developer that makes an add-on for Rhino, called TerraFlat ( basicly a tool that allow you to flatten a curved surfaces to get the actual shape of the flattened surface. They use this technology for cuting fabric for automotive seats, shoes. etc.He's thinking there may be some need for this type of tool in BIM so he wants to meet to discuss possible uses, and to understand how we use revit, and how it operates. I'm thinking that a similar tool may be useful for flattening curved walls to produce elevations that show entire wall elevations. But it would have to be sort of like a section thaty follows a curved line.

Anyways, just thought i'd post this to get some feedback from the revit community.So, If Anyone has any ideas as to any other possible uses and applications for such a tool in Revit, let me know.

Any suggestions for any other add-ons, not related to flattening surface are welcomed. Maybe I could convince them to produce a tool that revit users have been asking Autodesk for, but that hasn't been added to Revit yet.

I have asked in the past for a method of creating civil work in Revit. To do a proper job it is necessary to create a profile on a curve. I have devised this method below to do some modest street work but to do it properly it would be very useful to use as we used to call it a developed section that is a section along a line that can be flattened out so that a vertical curve can be placed on it. Once haveing placed the vertical curve, one could have the any type of profile follow it. It would be really neat if one could also use this tool to cut topography, as well.
