part was modeled as a dumb solid.
is there a 2-3 click solution to convert to sheet metal
select linear edge, insert bends, voila
Yep Kenneth is correct. "Insert bends" is always the way to go for rolled sheet metal parts. Convert to sheet metal needs a flat face so another option would have been to extrude a .001" flat on one end of the part and use that as your flat face.
Convert to sheet metal is not the 2-3 click solution you were looking for though. Insert bends is the easiest way but some people may prefer the extra functionality and options that come with the convert to sheet metal function.
