How to flatten a pipe with non-linear edge?

Hello everyone.
I want to flatten a pipe that has non-linear edge. In linear pipe, I easily use "insert bends" then with "flatten" create my model. But in non-linear, when I use the "insert bend" command in sheet metal part, an error appears that "non-linear edge is invalid". Does anyone have any idea to solve this problem?
