I made this part and some of the features can not be unbent.  I could leave it as is but once I transfer to a drawing and try to show a flat view of it, I get warnings.  Besides, since the part can't be unbent, I'm asusming it also can't be made...? 


So...  You guys see the part I want to make...  Can you tell me where I went wrong?  Should I use Indent for the stamping or should I use Forming tool?


I was wondering if just reordering the features will allow the Flatten feature to work...?  SW help says that any features created while Flatten is UNsuppresed will only show up on the flattened part.  I'm not sure why this would be used...  I would want those features to show in the flattened state AND in the bent state.
