Sheet metal Bending guide

Hello everyone

To make sheet metal bending more accurate and easy, I use a small triangle cut the points at the location of bending line so that the operator does not have to measure, instead, he just uses these triangles (shown in attached file) as a guide.

I do that manually now, by using Unfold/Fold commands and cut these triangles as a separate feature.

I thought, though, there could be something that Soildworks do for me here, so I searched but could not find anything in sheet metal.


So, I am writing this to ask if anyone has a better idea to do what I have described in a more automated way than the one I described.


Thank you very much.
