I work with sheet metal parts almost every day at work. I often go back and forth between the folded part and the flattened part (I have to switch modes from a menu: they are displayed as separate bodies in the tree, but only one or the other can be seen in the 3D view at a time). I have to edit sheet metal parts quite often, change features etc. So a parametric unfold item would save time. But,

This I understand. FreeCAD seems to have limitations in that regard; in the commercial CAD system I use at work, the flattened part is not automatically recomputed when not in flattened mode.
