I am using a piece of 4X8 sheet metal to bend into a mirror in the shape of a parabola. This is easy to do in real life but not so easy to do in SolidWorks.

How do I create a sheet metal object of this mirror as a parabola and constrain it's circumference to make sure it accurately represents what the 4X8 sheet of flat metal can do?
