Sketches on sheet metal part for laser cutting.

I need to design some sheet metal parts with sketches for laser cutting (marking, etching...). They can be used for precuts or for manual bending.


I have a sheet metal part with a flange on the four corners of the square (see attached).


Tried three ways:


  1. I tried to draw a sketch on the unfolded flange and then fold it. It's OK, but I only can make a mirror for the flange, not the sketch.
  2. The other way was to make the mirror of the flange, unfold and then drew a sketch for all flanges. When folding again all sketched were projected over the face of the first flange.
  3. Wrap tool doesn't let me to use opened sketched


How do you work in that case?


Thank you in advance.
