Gauge table custom properties

Hi All,


I'm working on setting up some part and drawing templates for sheet metal parts. I have different gauge tables I use depending on if a part is outsourced or made in house.


I'd like to be able to call up parameters like bend deduction or k-factor etc. in the drawing title block. I think the best way to do this is to make custom properties in the part that look at the values specified in the gauge table.


I can't figure out how to reference those values - they don't show up in the drop down list of custom properties available to me, even after I have created a sheet metal part using gauge table.


I can't reference geometry on the part, as I want to save as .prtdot, so all geom will be deleted.


Any wisdom would be appreciated.....
