Sweep Flange Flatten not working?

Hi all,

 

I have a imported solid I am tasked to remodel and make into a sheet metal part that can be flattened so we can cut out on a laser machine.

 

dumb solid:

 

 

now I have attempted to use a edge flange which would not flatten

 

 

when I attempt to flatten I get the following error:

 

 

so I attempted a Sweep Flange

 

 

when I flatten this it appears to me its missing a piece

 

 

so what am I doing incorrectly or is there a better method to get the end geometry or is this beyond the sheet metal functionality?

 

sheetmetal part is the one attempting to copy the one marked - is the attempt, the radius of the dumb solid are not correct to make the part which i altered in my attempt

 

using Solidworks 2019

 

Regards,
