Adjusting Sheet Metal Bend K-Factor By Bend


When working in sheet metal, you can set the k-factor for the entire model.  However when bending a terminal contact, thinning (elongation) occurs.  Can the k-factor be set in a varying factor?

Yes, you can set the k-factor with respect to each bend feature under the Bend Allowance tab in the feature creation ribbon.
