Sheet metal gauge/bend tables store properties for a designated material. A single table lets you associate a bend allowance, bend radius, or k-factor with any combination of thickness, bend radius, and material.
You can access the sheet metal gauge/bend table:
- While creating the base flange, from the Base Flange PropertyManager.
- After creating the base flange, by right-clicking Sheet Metal in the FeatureManager design tree and selecting Edit Feature.
Tables are included in the SolidWorks application, and are located in: <install_dir>\lang\<language>\Sheet Metal Gauge Tables\.
Both gauge/bend table and gauge tables are included. You can use them as templates to create your own tables.
The following shows a combined gauge/bend table. For each gauge number (thickness), you can select from a range of radii and angles.
