How can I find the sheet metal stretch limits under press forming process by SolidWorks?

I have a sheet metal project that is very simple in first glimpse. A forming tool which is a cube forms a thin 10mil aluminum foil sheet. I want to know what is the stretch limit of my foil (if it breaks under forming or not) and if I can Identify factors that affect material drawing versus stretching behaviors during forming.

I do not know if I have to use SolidWorks simulation or evaluation.

I tried to use plastic deformation for this problem but I do not know how to define the sheet clamping constraints.
