Is threre a way to have a sheet metal cross section be used as the section within the frame tool? When complete, I want to turn the frame parts into flat patterns.

I don't believe so.....due to the way frame elements are derived, based on a single cross section profile, the relevant info for the sheet metal functions are not adhered to.
