Trouble making part in sheet metal

I am having trouble modeling a part as a sheet metal part.  I am able to model the part as a regular 3D part but can't convert it.  At first I tried modeling the part flat then applying the necessary bends.  the part that I'm having trouble with is correctly bending the side wall up the also bending a ridge up within the bent side walls.  I have attached a PDF (image) of the 3D part, the 3D file and a sheet metal version of the part.  I need to be able to show both the bent version of the part and the flat version to a vendor for costing purposes.
