Any way to dimple sheet metal without using forming tool file?

We are trying to get going in Solidworks and the forming tool workflow is, not ideal, to put it mildly.  We are desperately looking for  the simple dimple from sketch option.  We are used to the simple workflow of drawing a closed profile on a sheet metal surface then doing a dimple feature with settings for offset distance, angle, punch and die radii.  Is there any feature like that in Solidworks?  I've been told no a few times, but the lost time of messing around with the forming tool files is getting uncomfortable so I'm still looking for something better.

 

Thank you.
