  2. Click Convert to Sheet Metal (Sheet Metal toolbar) or Insert > Sheet Metal > Convert To Sheet Metal .
  3. In the PropertyManager, under Sheet Metal Parameters, select the fixed face.
  4. Under Bend Edges, select the bend edges.
  5. Under Rip Sketches, select the sketch you created to define the rip.
