SOLIDWORKS: Grain Direction Note

Yes, you can get a Grain direction note added to your drawings in SOLIDWORKS.

Your part needs to have a Sheet Metal feature and Flat Pattern feature. Edit the Flat Pattern feature to set the Grain dirction/coil direction first. Then on the drawing, insert a Bend Table and the Grain direction note as well as the Fixed Face note will appear.
