How can I add material in a bend region (for later trimming) without it merging the bends? I have included a sample of the workaround I use for standard edge flanges. I have tried this multiple ways using a miter flange and swept flange but it always loses sheet metal status and won't allow flattening. I need to use either miter or swept for the part I am currently working on.
The screenshot below shows my current method: extrude,flatten,cut.
Any help is appreciated.
