Let’s also say that Inventor searches the table and finds an exact match for the bend angle. It matches with Row-1. The next step is to find a match for the bend radius, which is 5 mm, but there is no match. So Inventor interpolates the value.

Imagine adding a new column to the table containing the column heading for 5 mm.
