after the convert to sheet metal function I try to edit the k factor, but after the change the flat pattern in the drawing doesn't update.
It' remains as the k factor wasn't changed.
Can you try and tell me if this problem is replicable ?
Works ok in SW2010.
Can you post the part to see if the problems there?
Edit. Dohhh - the file will be in SW2011 so I wouldn't be able to open it
Post it here, I coud give it a try
try to change the k factor in the part and verify if in the drawing the total length is changed.
Allesandro ... I'm not seeing any change either.
Kenneth ... Tried all that, still no change.
The K-factor change is being ignored in the original model.
Changing the part to start as a SM part reflects changes to the K-factor.
try deleting the convert to sheetmetal feature and re-insert new convert to sheetmetal feature.
is the part a thin extrude?
try insert bends instead of convert to sheetmetal
The part starts life as a solid block.
Any number of workarounds could be employed, but the point is, the K-factor is not working.
Looks like the "convert to sheet metal" feature plain ignores the K factor, but works well with gauge tables.
I think you could build your own gauge table and use that instead of k factor (on the long run it's more reliable, too)

are you sure ?
Try to edit the k-factor in the table and you can see that the flat-pattern doesn't change.
You see difference if you change the bend radius, but the k-factor is the same.
I attached an example part, it's not the real part.
I asked because this command is 3 years old and I thought that was strange this bug that nobody in this 3 years had reported.
Please report to your VAR.
More we are, before will be resolved.
