Can someone tell me if there`s anyway to flatten any of these pieces on inventor??

I`ve already flatten some simple ones, but can`t find a solution for these.

I`ll be thankful for any help.

Part1 will not unfold in Inventor.

Part2 might unfold if created with the Inventor Sheet Metal tools (Contoured Roll), as it is your edges are not perpendicular with what would be the flat.  I didn't give it a try, but this one might be doable.
