BA and BD available?

Whithin a sheet metal part, Is bend allowance and bend deduction already available within the variables some how? Or must I re-create the background math to make them available within the variables.

 

Once I open that can of worms, then I assume I should replace the bending formula with what I use to create BA and BD.

In sheet metal part, right click on "Material" on in the feature tree.  Then when the dialogue box pops up, click on the "Gage" tab.  There you should be able to set "k" factor and such.

Yes, but that's not the question. As a result of R and K, there is a BA and BD. I need the BA and BD numbers for downstream issues.
