Sheetmetal cone made from segmented bends instead of “rolled”

Is there a quick and dirty way to create a cone in sheetmetal that consists of multiple bends (also called a frutstum)? My supplier of sheetmetal parts does not support rolling sheetmetal but bending is no problem. I cant find it which to me seems strange as this would be a simple but effective function?!

If I had to model something like this I would probably start with just making a model of the idealized cone first, then Operations -> Convert to Sheetmetal.

You've got to talk to your supplier and figure out what they're comfortable with as far as the number of bends in the cone. I.e. is an octagonal shape okay, or do you need 12 sides, etc.
