Sheet metal cone with flange on SolidEdge

Sheet metal cone with flange on SolidEdge


First of all, I'm sorry for my bad english. I hope you'll be patients.
I'm starting to use SolidEdge (ST6) after many years experience in Solidworks.
Can I create a sheet metal cone with a flange on Solidedge? Now, I try to create it by "Lofted flange": for first, I drew 2 open circles in two parallel plane, so I create the cone without problems.
Now, I would like to create a flange on the cone upper edge (with holes for screws), but always using the command "Lofted flange" when I have to define the direction of the thickness, appears to me an error message definition.
In solidworks by the command "Swept Flange" I drew two sketches: a path of sweep (a open circle) and a path of profile (a diagonal line joined to a horizontal). Thanks to these two sketches I get a conical sheet metal flattened, (with flange on the upper edge)

Anyone can help me?
Thanks in advance
