How can I draw attached picture using solidworks sheet metal?

Convert to sheet metal
You can create a sheet metal part by converting a solid or surface body using the Convert to Sheet Metal command.

After you create the sheet metal part, you can apply all sheet metal features to it.

Use the Convert to Sheet Metal command with:

Solid or surface bodies that have:
No shells or fillets
Either a shell or fillets
Both a shell and fillets
Imported parts that are already in the form of a sheet metal part

If you are targeting this geometry for a SimCFD simulation (an assumption based on the forum this thread is in), then I would consider avoiding the use of any sheet metal features. The small bends, rips, and reliefs only add detail that is not needed. Stick with basic solid features and then shell it out.
