Bending a Contour Flange across a cutout

Hi guys,

 

I have problems creating a valid sheet metal part that looks like this:

I can't succeed in creating a flat pattern feature.

 

2018-02-28_15.gifbending across a bend serie (before add bend)2018-02-28_13.gifbending across a bend serie (after add bend)Any suggestions on a best way of creating something like this?

This is what our customers part looks like:

It used to be 3 parts; customer wanted a one piece part for ease of installation purposes.

I've been trying several ways of convert to sheet metal; sheet metal from solid... none works. Tried in both NX11 and NX12.

(not perfect solution, you will need to 'adjust to suit'  but may give you a way forward)
