Bounding Box Area in Custom Properties Tab for a Single Sheet Metal Part

Hi All,

 

I'm requiring the bounding box area to be in the custom/configuration specific property tab so I'm able to use it elsewhere later on. I'm only requiring this on a sheet metal parts so I can do some pricing up later on. Its frustrating as i can see the bounding box area in the cut list properties but don't know how to link it to the custom property tab.

In a BOM you can call up the bounding box area but it has to be in the cut list line which i don't normally show. I would like it to be on the main part instead.

I have done a little research on this but thought I would start a new thread for exactly what I would like/need. Also a lot of them require to run a macro every time, i would prefer not to do this.
