Gap for buttweld

Our shop would like the gap required for a full penetration weld to be included in our routes. We have moved the c-point on our flanges to accomplish this but that approach does not work very well with other fittings. When we put fitting to fitting runs together the gap doubles because you have two offsets.
I have found mention of adding a custom specified parameter. Can I use this option to create a gap that can then be controlled through the design table?
If so how?
