UV unwrapping with ZERO distortion

Hi, I’m interested in flattening 3D models into 2D printable patterns. The catch is they must have no distortion whatsoever; I literally want to end up printing out patterns with which to precisely recreate the model physically. Can anyone help?

there’s a script for this. I can’t remember it’s exact name, but I’ll have a look for it. It might just be for earlier versions. alternatively there is a program that does it, i think by ‘tacmi’ ( not sure ).

so, I guess this is what you are looking for, but I think there might be another one called ‘unfold’ http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/Import-Export/Paper_Model

Beautiful. Now for a noob question. I see the script on Git. Now how do I actually get it into my addons folder?

Oh wait found it thanks!!!
