Sheet metal help

I asked a previous question but incase it was a little confusing i'll try to change up the context.

 

Assume we have a 1x6" piece of sheet metal

I want to put in 90 degree bends that are 1" wide serpated by an inch of flat untouched sheet metal along this 6" member.

Resulting look:

90 degree bend for 1 inch, flat sheet metal section for 1 inch, another 90 degree bend for 1 inch, flat sheet metal section for 1 inch, repeating.

 

It's straight forward enough to bend the entire length of the piece using the sketched bend, but I have no idea how to bend those individual 1" width pieces seperated by an untouched piece of 1" sheet metal.

 

Hope this helps and any information would be greatly appreciated
