how to check sheetmetal parts for a bend radius of 0

Currently, our practice for sheetmetal parts that require a back cut bend, is to model the bend with a radius of 0. What I want is to have an excel listing all the parts and highlight those with a bend radius of 0. I have been able to make an excel macro that goes through the features and if they are sheetmetal features, check the feature data for a bend radius of 0. The problem is, I've run into two exceptions: One is if the part doesn't contain any bends but is still a sheetmetal part with the bend radius set to 0. The other is if within the base-flange feature, you edit the basebends to have a radius of 0, but the base-flange and sheetmetal features still have a radius other than 0, meaning the feature data will show a bend radius other than 0. It seems like if I could just get information about the basebends within the base-flange I could solve both issues but I have been unable to figure out how to access the basebend info. Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Nick
