Use Sheet Metal pattern as independent sketch???

steve_maiettasteve_maietta Member Posts: 54 PRO
I'm using the sheet metal tools to create cut and folding patterns for simple cardboard boxes.  I cannot add extra tabs or flaps (used to interlock the box when folded) to the sheetmetal model since in the workspace they would interfere.  Even when I trim back the walls so there would be no interference OS wont let me extrude these sketches.

Is there a way to use a flat pattern as a sketch?  With this I could be set free from OS sheetmetal parameters/logic.  This would be great.
