    There is one more approach to make the part. Instead of using sheet metal, use standard ipt file , extrude the desired shape and then use the shell command at last to make it hollow.

    Go to 3D Model menu
    Within Modify tab find Bend Part button
    Select Bend Line on Your sketch
    Set Bend Radius equal to Curve Radius and with the Side and Direction arrows change right bending side and direction.
