Finding flats for dished heads.

I believe I already know the answer to this, but is there a way to make Solidworks generate a flat for a dished head? I know how to find out what overall flat I need but what I'm trying to figure out is at what angle to cut the lines to get my gap to come out correctly. I know it will look something like sketch 4 (see attached) but I don't know at what angle to draw those lines. Is there anything within Solidworks to help me with this?
