Bend line location

I am relatively new to professional modelling with solidworks and am also new to the company I am working for (who has traditionally used AutoCAD). The shop foreman is used to making parts that we get cut out on a waterjet or laser to finished ID dimensions.


Is there a way to get SW to display the ID dimensions when dimesioning from one bend line to another (essentially neglecting the bend radius and allowances and all of that stuff)?


I have attached a drawing hopefully further explaining my point.Capture.PNG
