Creating ducting or tubing using design table

Hello All!

I am looking at trying to create an Excel spreadsheet that can create a model for me of a coaxial cable. My vendor uses the x, y, z data to plug into his CNC machine to bend up the cabling.

I have a model started, created my design table, but am limited by the dimensions I can input (limited by my knowledge right know is more like it) into the spreadsheet to change up the cable. I want to be able to specify the starting point is at the origin in the model and then what ever direction I want it to go. My problem is my first dimension was created in a positive direction on the x-axis, but the next version I want to create is in the negative direction. Is there a way to tell SW the x,y,z locations of the dimensions like you can in AutoCAD?

Thanks in advance for all the feedback,
