Issues creating part in Sheet metal

Hi guys, 

 

I've created a diffuser using surface modelling but I need to convert this to sheet metal and be able to flatten out all of the panels to which I can then add hole callouts to. I want to be able to then re-form each part as it is shown in the image below. 

 

Focussing on the single large purple section you will see that there is a planar section toward the front and two swept surfaces coming away. I have created both of these swept extrusions using the 'spline ' feature within the sketch. However

reading online it is clear that you cannot create sheet metal components from this method.

 

Can someone offer some advice as to what I could possibly do to solve this.

 

Thank you

 

 

Ryan
