Forming a part into rolled sheet metal

I'm trying to design a panel that is rolled sheet metal. I have my base part designed, and I want to know how I put a bend in the whole part such that it was put into a sheet metal roller (ie. it has a radius throughout the whole part). The only way I can figure out how to do this is create an arc with the radius I want, have it be oversized from my part, then start extruding cuts from the flat pattern until I achieve what I need. Is there a better method to doing this?
