Define Plane by Tangent

A new Tangent definition option has been added to the Plane feature.

Sheet Metal: Bend Deduction and Bend Allowance

You may now define sheet metal bends using a Bend Allowance or a Bend Deduction in the sheet metal model feature and edit their values in the sheet metal table.
