Which feature would tell me the bend radius of each bend?

I have written (with the help of many on this forum) a macro to identify if the part has any bend, See the following link for the complete macro: Which property would tell me that a sheet metal part contains at least one bend?

 

Where can I find information on the features accessible when swFeat.GetTypeName2 = "FlatPattern" ?

 

I would like to get the actual bend radius of each bend in the part to identify on which machine the part has to go to. I am not looking for the default minimal bend radius based on the material but the actual bend radius which may be bigger. We have sheet metal parts that are rolled formed and/or bent. I want my macro to be able to distinguish between the two process. It is easil done if I can get access to the actual bend radius of each bend.

 

Thanks everyone!
