I recently switched to Inventor 2012 from a previous version. I cannot find the create flat pattern command. Some of my coworkers were able to customize their RMB menu to have this command, but I am not even able to do that! (They don't have the command on the ribbon, either.)
I attached a picture of my sheet metal ribbon... don't know if it's helpful or not.

All I did on that part was create a face and add a flange, to see if on such a simple part the flat panel command would "appear".
Just started up Inventor for the day, and the command was there. I have no idea what changed between yesterday and today. Stay tuned, perhaps it will dissappear again?
So, same thing happend to me today; the Flat Patten panel was simply just gone.
So i forund this post. No answer though..
Seems like your problem solved it self without knowing why.
Mine didnt. Tried restarting both inventor and windows, but still no Flat Pattern panel!
Then I tried opening the same files from my colleagues pc, and voila, no problems. Flat Pattern panel was on colleagues pc, but not mine.
So, to go to the action: turns out I somehow "turned the panel off". And heres how to turn on/off all panels after wish:
