I am having trouble unfolding a curved part. I drew five parts of similar design in varying sizes. The first three unfold perfectly and export to dxf. The last two do not unfold, when I toggle between flat pattern and folded part the component remains the same on the screen. I am probably missing something daft but if anyone can help it would be appreciated.
I have attached one of the files that will not unfold.

Your sheet metal thickness doesn't match.
Use Contoured Flange instead.
The key reason here is that the thickness of body does not match the sheet metal thickness settings in sheet metal style. If the default sheet metal thickness in style equals to the thickness of body, it will work fine when recreating flat pattern. Pleas see the attached image.
