Include k-factor on drawing

I'm trying to create a custom property for bend allowance and k factor. I am specifying k-factor using a gauge table.

 

Bend allowance is automatically created as a  property of the solid body in the cut list folder, but I haven't been able to get that into an equation or the custom properties of the part.

 

Thickness is one of the options on the drop down list for custom properties, and I can get radius by using an equation to create a global variable, and then make a custom property of the global variable.

 

I can calculate k factor from bend allowance, thickness, angle and radius, so all i need to do is grab the bend allowance...

 

Maybe Bernie Daraz or another sheet metal pro has some tips?

 

Thanks a lot!
