Bent Frame Member?

I am attempting to make a frame that includes a couple bent members




This is a side view of my frame. I am trying to make it so that the outer members are simply one piece of angle iron that is notched and bent at the angles. I have not been able to figure out how to do this and as it stands right now, that piece of the frame is made up of 5 seperate lengths of angle iron. Is there any way to get it as one piece in the frame generator or any other way for that matter?

If you are using Frame Generator, when creating the legs, ensure the "MERGE" box is selected, then select the leg portions of your sketch.

This will merge those portions into a single frame member.
