How can I unfold sheet metal after patterning an extruded cut?

Hello, I´ve been trying to fold back this piece unsuccesfully. It was created with lofted bends.

I patterned an extruded cut as the picture shows and then tried to fold the piece back, but despite making sure it was a "normal cut" and also trying to pattern a hole feature, when using the "fold" command it says it "contains features that can not be unbent". The strange thing is that it folds back correctly if I don´t make the curve driven pattern. I could also make all the cuts inside the same sketch but there are like 300 holes and as far as i know there´s not a way to curve driven pattern elements of a sketch. If anyone has an idea on how to achieve this, it´d be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!
