Feature recognition: imported sheet metal (rolled cylinder)

Hi,

 

Could anyone help me with following scenario: I have a rolled cylinder (359.9°), which is originated from Solid Edge. Now I need to flatten that geometry and I tried to utilize Feature Works but with no luck so far. Only straight edge can be found at that narrow gap where end #1 almost meets end #2. Inser Bends doesn't work, nor does Convert to Seet Metal. Unfortunately that cylinder has few hundred holes, so Surfaces | Flatten surface can not be used in this case. Does anyone have a hint or maybe a link to Youtube video addressing similar issue..?

 

I'm using SWX 2015 if it has any impact on this.

 

TIA,

Markku
