SHEET METAL WELDED CORNER WONT

This is more of an enhancement request than a question.  However, if you know how I can get this done, I'd appreciate the help.

 

The attached sheet metal part will be manufactured with welds to close 4 of the seams for aesthetics.

 

I've added weld notes to the mechanical drawing, but I'd like to add welded corners to the model to improve the visualization when I make the presentation to my client.

 

When I try to insert Sheet Metal>Welded Corner and select a face, it won't create the weld bead.

 

The weld bead tool has baffled me for years.  The sheet metally version works a bit better if all of the bends are 90°.  Wouldn't it be swell if it worked as well as (or better than) fillets?
