Possible to set inside AND outside radii on sheet metal?

Is it possible to set the inside AND the outside radii of a sheet metal bend?

 

Currently, I only know how to set the inside radius, and that automatically dictates the outside radius.

 

Most of the time that's OK, but sometimes I wish to model the bends closer to reality, so I'll have a test bend made and measure the inside and outside radius, but am forced to chose one or the other to  be accurate, and am not able to do both.

 

The thicker the material and/or the more specialized the tooling is, the more of an issue this becomes.

 

Thanks for any help.
