Unfold a complex smooth shape

Using the Google Sketchup Subdivide & Smooth plugin & the unfold plug in, a shape like the one below, can be generated and unfolded flat to 2D form.

We have made a collection of shapes like this, similar in complexity, so we now have the joyful job of tracing and cutting all these bits out and assembling! Looks like it could be another late night...
