Introducing a "Factor K" table.

I have recieved a table with the values of the  FACTOR K for diferents thicknesses.

E.G.

Thicknesses -  Bending radious - K factor

0.5 - 1.5 - 0.8

0.8 - 0.8 - 0.3

1 - 1 - 0.225

1.5 - 1.5 - 0.35

2 - 2 - 0.75

2.5 - 2 - 0.65

3 - 3 - 0.32

4 - 4 - 0.21

5 - 5 - 0.68

6 - 6 - 0.46

8 - 8 - 0.34

10 - 10 - 0.51

12 - 12 - 0.56ç

 

Now I would like to introduce it as a default value on my Solidworks configuration. On the propety manager in sheet metal we can choose how to select the K-Factor between 5 options, the standard in my case is Factor-K 0.33.

 

I think I should select the bending table and then configurate it with the values above. The .xls document I have found is in this path: "C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\lang\english\Sheetmetal Bend Tables".

 

My problem is that I do not know how to introduce those values properly to avoid alarms and problems when I am working with it, in some cases I can not unbend the sheet or I get a yellow alarm (it seems that solidworks is looking for the value but not Ias I expect).

 

Best regards,
