Drawing of multiple views of "in progress" bending

I have a sheetmetal part with multiple bends of varying degrees. I would like to make a drawing showing a flat blank with the first bend location specified. Then another view with that bend completed and the next bend line shown with a dimension to the edge where the bend would be gauged from. Then another view of those two bends bent, with the next bend line shown and a dimension to the bent edge where the next bend line will be gauged from and so on. I tried a couple different methods with no success. I ended up using Solidworks to generate the various views, then exported the drawing to my 2D software, then added and dimensioned the appropriate bend lines.
