How to report the sheet metal K-Factor in a parameter for a note.

Hello All:


I am trying to report the sheet metal K-Factor in a note, and am running into a roadblock. There is a sheet metal parameter, smt_k_factor but I cannot get it to display.


Anybody successfully done this? If so, how?

How to report the sheet metal K-Factor in a parameter for a note.

Marc - I don't know of a way to display the K factor parameter value,
but you need to beware that if you're using a Bend Allow table, the K
and Y values are ignored (controlled in the table) and their listed
values do not update correctly. We found it worked to have a drawing
table that listed the 3 bend tables with their corresponding K and Y
values, with a cell where you could tick off the appropriate one used
in the model. Not very parametric however.
