Sudhir, thank you but I believe you missed the point - I am looking specific bend/gauge tables for cardboard sheets not metal ones. Tables shipping with Solidwordks contains are only for metals. Please notice, cardboard sheets behave differently to metal sheets - metals get elongated in the bend area while cardboard is actually crushed/compressed while being bended.

I also have that problem. Ok I have found location of xls files, but shouldn't it contain a CARDBOARD table like in this tutorial?

Me too. Saw the tutorial - no Cardboard in my gauge table menu. Checked SW files, SW Content Central, GrabCAD, Googled around and found reference to it's existence, but still no. I also posted additional request on the youTube video. Could build my own table if someone has raw data on fold compression, etc or even a rough guideline would help. Thanks
