making foam board plans from 3d models

I've been making my scratch build planes with "that looks about right" design and also not using any plans or actually design soft ware. I want to start making more complex planes and to do that I will need to design a plane and print plans for it. I'm pretty familiar with OnShape and I'm wondering if anybody can help me make foam board plans from 3d models from OnShape.

I haven't used OnShape for some time now. Does it have a sheet metal feature. If so, this would be a good place to start. I'm a mechanical designer. I use Inventor and SolidWorks professionally, but I also volunteer at a local makerspace and teach Fusion 360 to high school students. If there is enough demand I could host a Fusion 360 course for y'all. And if you give a week or two I could refamiliarize myself with OnShape and do the same for that. Let me know if that's something everyone would be interested in. I'd like to give back to the FT community in return for all of the free and cheap plans I've been able to get and all of the knowledge I've gained lurking these forums.

I had a hard time with that, and ultimately just got it done with autocad

I will put my hand up for this
