Sheet metal bending constraints in SW

I work in a metal fabrication shop. Our engineers use Solidworks. Some of them have difficulties understanding the physical constraints of the bender geometries (i.e., they will put a double bend in that is too deep and narrow for the die to get into, or double up flanges in such a way as to make them impossible to bend as per the CAD.) Are there plugins in SW that I can install which will model our tools and run a simulation of the bend for them, allowing us to not waste time with unbendable parts?


Thanks in advance.
