Question about bending


New member
I have a question about bends and bending information- ok, so when bringing in my part as a flat, by default, Solidworks tells me on each bend " UP xx deg. " and the radius of the bend as well. What i want to know is, how can i make it so other information is displayed as well? information such as bend deductions and allowances. etc... Do i have to make a table? also, when i double click on the "deg. and radius" info on each bend, i am taken to a text editor which has something like " <bend-direction> <bend-angle> <bend-radius>" well, does anyone know what other commands there are that i could maybe manually type in? i tried adding "<bend-deduction>" but that didnt work...any input is MUCH appreciated. Thanks.
