I would like to ask any support to how can I solve the problem I have to face.

I have a metal sheet part. In the middle of it there is a square shape cutting. 

I would like to create a flange to get the final flat pattern as you can see in the attached file nemed "flat pattern.png".

Adjust your corner setting for the flange.

Apply a CORNER CHAMFER to the edges of the flanges.

Your flat pattern should look like this.  You may have to tweak your flange corner settings (or GAP settings) to achieve the desired final part.
