Hi all,


Attached is a part of a 70mm thick cone with 2 ~ cut outs that has been imported from X-Steel as an IFC file into SolidWorks (2013) then saved as a part.


What I am now trying to do is convert this part to a sheet metal part so I can get a flat pattern showing the outer profile and the 2 cut - outs so we can burn it.


I have tried to use the insert bends selected a face then gone and selected all the lines for bending but keep getting error messages see below.



Could someone please have a go at converting this to sheet metal part for me. Or explain where I have gone wrong.
