Saw this recently ( an Unfolding plugin for another 3d app ) and thought it looks really good:

Is there a LightWave equivalent?

I'm positive there would be a way to do this in LW with nodes, but there isn't to my knowledge a plugin that will do that inside of LW. Ryan Roye shows you how to do a rolling unwrapping effect:

And this guy does a lot of cool stuff with LW and nodes (more polyfliping that unrolling though):

So irritating not having this in LW.

It's not that we don't have it, it just isn't automated in LW. This is definitely possible using nodes and cleverly placed bones/nulls.
And in my experience creating things yourself from scratch makes you a stronger artist and the final work is usually more refined.

That's a really good tutorial.

Yep, and there are another two parts to come. Seriously, these guys don't just bend stuff in Lightwave, they bend my brain with what they do with nodes.

Have fun trying this stuff with nodes, for me its way too complicated and try and error.
