Update K-factor for old parts

Question asked by Dean Baragar on Sep 25, 2017

Hi,

We are resurrecting an old project that was done 9 years ago.  Everything was drawn in AutoCAD, but when the flat patterns were imported to Solidworks and the bends added, K-factor/bend allowance was not considered.  This means that all of the bend profile dimensions in the drawings are wrong, but the flat patterns are correct.

Is there a fast (automatic even?) way to go through all of these old files and correct the K-factor.  I know how to do it manually, but I really don't want to spend much time on this.
