Compound Angles & 2d Templates

Greetings All

I have a simple question where a compound angle was created to the cross-section of a 2" x 1" rectangle tube.  No big deal, Onshape handles that easily.

However, we can create "perfect geometry" in Onshape then go to the shop and scratch our heads trying to figure out how to fabricate.

Without purchasing a Sliding Compound Miter Saws; I was wondering.  Could Onshape help me to create a 2d pattern of the "compound angle" where
I could print the template, wrap it around the tubing, and cut the four sides with a grinding wheel?

Appreciate your assistance.
