Prevent creating unformable parts?

Forgive me for my "newbness". Im self taught on Solidworks so my ability to convey what I am thinking is probably awful.

 

Is there any way to make Solidworks tell you when youve created a sheet metal part that your vendor can't fit in their laser or can't bend? What I am thinking first is maximum bounding box dimensions to match the laser bed size. Also some way to keep you from making bends that will cause the part to hit the equipment. Ive been relatively successful just trying to pay attention but sometimes something slips through the cracks. Thanks in advance!
