Hy. I wish to find out if it's possible to convert this solid/sketch to sheet metal and apply a flange to it's edge.. Any tips are welcome!

Create a sketch on the end, and the profiles for the bend area and the leg then extrude the 3 closed regions. You will need to do this for each end on it's own.

Without the file, my guess is that the new flange does not have any clearance with the ends of the existing flanges.

 

Add a new 0° Flange of say 0.1 (or any size) at that edge first to give just a bit of clearance, then add the desired 90° Flange.

 

You might then add a Corner Seam to bring the flange to the outer edge and a Round to finish it off (on both ends).

With a change of order of operations the tri-corner could be tightened up as well.

Look at Contour Roll in Sheet-Metal. You will probably want to start from scratch.

Here it is. IV 2010 file. But I would check manually that the flat pattern dimensions are correct.

Regards,

Igor.

Not a problem, just create a new extension on one end and create longer legs for the extrusion, then cut/fillet the sharp corner to get your radius.
