Extra dimensions in weldments cut list

First thing, I'm a relatively new Solidworks user, so please bear with me if I'm missing something obvious, it isn't obvious to me yet!


I want to add some extra angle dimensions to a weldment cut list. The default template includes columns for "ANGLE1" and "ANGLE2", however the parts I am looking at involve complex angles at each end. ie: I need to specify two angles per end.


Further to this, each structural member does not sit square to the surface to which it is attached. I have used the trim/ extend function to cut one side at the surface contact, but I need to specify the angle of this cut in the cut sheet for the workshop.



Is there a way to get these dimensions into a welment cut list and more specifically, is there a way to set up a template that will include these dimensions automatically as I have a lot of similar sorts of parts to look at?


Thanks in advance for any help.
