Rolling Sheet Metal into a circle

I'm not familiar with sheet metal function in solidworks and I was wondering how you would roll a piece of flat sheet metal to a full circle. From what I can see you cant complete a full circle so 359° would do.


I am creating a vessel shell from several flat welded plates and need to show in what position to weld them when in the flat state. But it would be also good to show it in the rolled state.


Hopefully the attached will help, those are my six sheets which need rolling into a circle (around Ø3820 (3*4000mm sheets)).
