When I have a sheet metal part specified as a certain gauge and i go to dimension it in a layout it comes up as a decimal is there a way to change that to automatically recognize its gauge number?
After some more thought, you may be able to write an equation into a custom property of your part template that would adjust the property value according to a given dimension, but I'm not at all sure. Someone else may have an idea.
I don't know of any way to do it with the dimension, but you could make "gauge" a custom property for the part and call it out in the drawing with a note that references the custom property.
would that be somthing i have to do every time a make a new part?
thank you i will give it a try.
Were you able to figure this out with an equation?
