You should spend some time on Youtube, and seach for: Inventor, +sheet metal

 

There are a number of good tutorials that show different features and functionality of the Sheet-Metal module in Inventor.

A while back (4 or 5 years ago) I posted an example very similar to this.
I will have to search a bit to find it.

It might be better for you to attach your attempt here (modeling the geometry however you can - it doesn't have to be sheet metal).

The solution turns out to be pretty simple.
