is it possible to insert into an assembly the flat pattern of a sheet metal file? 99% of time only need formed view. I can create a new part file and insert part copy and flatten as part of the part copy command. Can also create a Family of Parts with 2 different files where i unbend the part. However, I am interested if there something more direct and simple I am missing?

FOP would be nice if we could store different states in same part without populating members. Unfortunately SE doesn't support this workflow...
Here is a video about steps:
