Flattening a Sheet Metal Part in a motion study

Hi all,

 

I am creating a pocket that has a somewhat "U" shaped channel with two end caps and I have to give a presentation on the assembly.  The pocket will be made entirely out of sheet metal and my presentation has to include the manufacturing processes that I am going to be using.  I think it would be really sharp to show the initial piece of sheet metal that creates the pocket bent from a flat sheet to start a motion study.  The part was drawn using sheet metal but I can figure out how to apply the flatten feature inside the motion study.  Any help would be much appreciated.
