score on bend line

I hope this is easier than I am making it out to be.....

We have some 1/8" thick uhmw sheeting that we bend at 90 degrees. Prior to bending, we score one side of the sheet 1/16" deep on the bend line. This keeps the material from springing back to flat after bending.

I need help modeling this 2-step process. I would prefer a sheet metal part that I could detail the "scoring" process in the flat pattern, and show the final product in the formed view.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions
