Any idea's how to easily add a notch along edges at the center of a sheet metal fold to guide the operator?

I could add on the dxf, post-export but i should be able to do it in Onshape

    @bryan_lagrange yes, that's where we need a un-bend - bend feature or the ability to sketch and extrude cut on the flat pattern, or I wonder how hard it is to write a sheet metal FS to add them to a selected edge similar to the corner tool?

    Looks like I heading to AutoCAD to get this one out.
