Hi everyone
I have a question

I am making a shell in Alias.

There's some hole cutting on it.

The thing is that, right now I need to make the real shell by a sheet metal.

So the way would be that I get the sheet metal and draw the hole it, cut it and fold it to my shell.

The problem is that I design the hole based on the curve shell.

But how I can get the right pattern when the sheet metal is flat. and
also the shape of the hole.

Later when I folded it, the shape of the sheet metal and the hole will match my design.

I build the model in Alias 3D software, and also solidworks.

Is there any way I can get it when it's flat, and the pattern of the hole and shape?

ThX!
