Why won't this bend unfold?

Hi all


I have a sheet metal part as attached and for the life of me cannot work out why the Edge-Flage1 will not unfold! I must be missing something simple


The only way it will unfold to a flat pattern is if I suppress the Cut-Extrude1


The Cut-Extrude2 is modeled the same way and it unfolds fine.


If anyone can help me out, that would be mint!


Let me know if there is a better way to model this part. Its 3mm mild steel sheet, pressed flanges and hand bent to the final U shape
