SHEETMETAL PART WON'T FLATTEN

michael_mcewenmichael_mcewen OS Professional Posts: 43 PRO

I'm using the sheetmetal function for the first time.  Trying to flatten a converted sheetmetal part.  There are 4 bends selected.  But it won't allow flattening as drawn.  Cant see why not.  Any suggestions?

I had originally thought to extrude a drawn profile, but in sheetmetal, I don't see any way to cut out the middle area. 

Also, in sheetmetal part from converted form, I don't see any option to select bend radius. Here's a link to my simple part. Thanks.
