BENT BAR STOCK IN WELDMENTS

Hello all:

i am trying to create a weldment consisting of a sheet metal plate where i have to add flat bars to the ends, the flat bars are bent to match the edge cuts of the sheet metal piece.

the problem i am having is that the cut list treats the bent bar(s) as separate straight sections, is there a way to resolve this so the cut list only calls up one item for the bent piece? i would prefer to leave this as a weldment if possible but i'm thinking that i may have to model the bend pieces as a sheet metal items in order to capture the full design intent (bend radius etc.).

T.I.A.
Duane
