3D to 2D Projections (post #178362)

I'm designing a bar stool that has compound bends in the seat. Is there an extension for SketchUp that takes a 3D object and projects it to 2D (think a basketball projected so the 2D pieces can be stitched to form a 3D sphere)? Not sure what the correct terminology for this is. I'd like to use a CNC machine to fabricate the bending form and then use the CNC to fabricate the projections (or patterns),
