Working with foam parts, how do I handle bend allowance and flattened parts?

I need a model of both a rolled and flat pattern of a foam part. SolidWorks sheet metal was used to make it, and fitted to a wrap around a cylinder, then a flat form made. But the real part made from this flat pattern was short.

 

I'm thinking we need to handle K-factor or bend allowance some special way. Does anyone have experience with this willing to share a good technique? Attaching an example part for reference.
