That's a puzzle!
I made an attempt a different way, but did not quite get there. Had fun trying.
1. Made a simulated sheet metal part using standard intellishapes (not using sheetmetal tools) just to get geometry to pull from.
2. Created thicken shape part from outer surface geometry.
3. Then created flat pattern from surfaces to see how close it looked unfolded.
I got some little joggles in flat at the bend line, but heck it could tell me where to bend it. Now back to work! Attached File(s)
