We present an algorithm to unfold any triangulated 2-manifold (in
particular, any simplicial polyhedron) into a non-overlapping,
connected planar layout in linear time. The manifold is cut only
along its edges. The resulting layout is connected, but it may have a
disconnected interior; the triangles are connected at vertices, but
not necessarily joined along edges. We extend our algorithm to
establish a similar result for simplicial manifolds of arbitrary
