Bend line note (K-factor) does not keep it's correct value.

Hi everybody,

has anybody experience the same issue?

I am attaching my Part and Drawing to test it.



The bend note line would not keep it's correct K-factor value in my drawings.

Every time I reopen my drawing, the K-factor correct value is lost and K-factor only shows K0.

What I am forced to do is the Re-open the Part/model, go to Sheet-metal(1) in the left tree, open it and re-save the K-factor value which will than re-show the drawing's K-factor correct value in the bend line , but only while this drawing is open. Next time, the K-factor bend line value is gone again and shows K0 only.



If I use Bend Deduction rather than K-factor in my part, the Bend Deduction Value in the bend line note would stay there for ever but not the K-factor.

I am not sure why Solidworks would not remember the correct K-factor value in the bend line note.


I have tried to reset and change values in drawing...Option>Document Properties>Tables>Bend.........but no help here.


Thank you for your help guys.....
