First thanx for your reply, i am working in factory that manufactur hollow metal doors. as you know we use sheet to product the doors & fram. so that i use AutoCad to design the sheet,also i use formula to calculate the unfolding size.

i am keen user in CATIA program, but the size for unfolding sheet in CATIA dosent match with formula. So i need to increase the value of K factor Up to 1.75 to be the size matches togother.

if you have another method plese advise
