Tool Wear Offset in SolidWorks Cam?

I've been manually programming my CNC machine for some time now. Just now getting into the drawing/cam side. I'm curious if there is any way to turn on a tool wear parameter in SolidWorks cam? 

 

When manually programming, we use a D value and can consequently adjust the tool wear for actual size of tools. In the cam software, there is no D value in the g-code as it automatically adjusts the tool path for the selected tool size but doesn't take tool wear into consideration. 

 

Any help is appreciated!
