Trying to flatten a surface

Valued Contributor

Looking for some help,

How come I cannot flatten the red surface? I can copy the surface and thicken it.

How do I upload the file? Whenever I try to attach it, I get a message that says "

The contents of the attachment doesn't match its file type."

 

All ideas appreciated.

Regards

@Greybarn   .zip the file then upload the zip.

 

is this a part model or sheet metal?  are you trying to flatten via sheet metal or part env?

This is a part model. I have attached an zipped up, unlinked version of the part file.

I was able to get a flattened surface by copy one of the surfaces, thickening it, adding a body, hiding the original body, and then making a blank body. But I have never gone through that many steps before.
