Correct Work Flow for Flat Pattern?

Good day


Lets say I have a sheet metal part that is a 120° arc of a circle. But I want my flat pattern to represent the complete circle. This is so I can have 1 circle rolled and then cut 3 arcs from it. I tried just adding the extra material to the flat pattern and also tried using a feature that I suppressed in the separate  configurations. But SolidWorks did not agree with either methods.


Any suggestions would be welcome.


Extra points if it is possible to have the radius of the arc differ from that on the flat pattern.
