Does anyone know of a VBA program that creates a flat pattern from a 3D solid in autocad (not inventor)?

Striker Systems

There are third party programs that will work with autocad to unfold a 3d solid, the I use is Striker System.

Give it a try

You can also try the SECTIONPLANE command if your using Auto cad 2007 or 2008. It will generate 2D blocks depending where you place your section plane on your model.
