I have  a sheet metal part template that someone else has already made it but I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to make one from scratch. I also would like to know in edit feature of sheet metal when I choose for example Galvanized as you can see in the picture below in sheet metal parameters then I can select my required material for example here is 22 Ga Galv and my bend radius will automatically change respect to my 22 Ga Galv( I know where the tables are and can modify that) but my k-factor wont change automatically.For instance when I change the material gage from 22 to 18 gage the k factor wont change and I have to do it manually.

I also tried the bending table but when I make or change bending table the bend allowance will pick bend table and I can chose from there. but I actually want the k-factor to be changed in bend allowance section when I choose different material.

I would appreciate it if someone can walk me through this.
