K-Factor per configuration

We use configurations exstensively, and have a real need for K-Factors to change per configuration, like a dimension or material specification.

When we create a sheet metal part that has, for example, an AISI 1020 configuration & an AISI 304 configuration, we are forced to average the K-Factor between the two for this model. This creates a flat pattern that is also dimensionally an average between the two configs.

Are there different ways to approach this while using the K-Factor method, or will this someday be a configurable number?
