Lofted Bend Flat Pattern Question

I am working on a radius blade for a fan and need to cut it. I am using a lofted bend to get my blade blank. Everything works great except one edge of the blade is cut on an angle. When I compare the size of the formed part to the  flat part, the flat uses the wider of the two edges. Does anyone know of a setting to use the smaller of the profiles instead of the larger one? Basically this means that my flat will be larger than the part formed in 3D so when the guy in the shop is assembling the weldment, he will have excess material to grind away for it to fit properly. Thanks.
