Cut List -45 or +45 Values for Saw

My company requires a cut list for every job that we do, one major problem that SolidWorks has is the angles in a cut list not showing the direction of the cut.

If the saw man were to just get the list and not the drawing, how the saw man is meant to know at which direction the angle is going (see example below):

Above shows a cut list for the 3 weldment parts.

 

Is there a way to show a direction in the cutlist? Ideally we would want the cutlist to show this:

Are we the only company who requires this? Any help would be great, not sure if this would have to be done with a macro?
