Too bad you can't unfold a loft in SM. You can
unfold a cylinder but if it was possible to unfold a loft rolled cones and
folded cones would be a snap (just like coding for it, right <G>).

Larry,

I had issues with this recently, and found out that
IV needs to see exactly straight edges along the bendlines, but a loft creates
most often slightly curved edges. Having straight edges is one of the basic
demands for a unfold.
