Question on sheetmetal part with roof angle running along part length

Hello All,

 

I have enclosed an image of a sheetmetal part that has a 1.5 angle on both sides of the part down the center of the part length (like a house roof).

 

When I make this a sheetmetal part with thickness and unfold it, I am looking for a technique that flattens each of the 1.5 angles equally but I don't seem to get that result.

 

My predicessor had used a plane tipped at the 1.5 degree to first construct one half of the part and then made the other half a flange.

 

This seems to be problematic if the part undergoes changes as I am dealing with now.

Any thoughts and insights would be greatly appreciated,
