Change sheet metal's default properties?

WITHOUT A MACRO---- Is there a way to change the default properties SW creates for a Sheet metal body? I use a combination of weldments and sheet metal for a lot of structural work. I have created flat bar weldments to make tracking lengths easier and sometimes I will substitute it for a sheet metal part to get bends and show flat patterns. This works great but the cut list gets a little messy. I have been adding "length" to these parts and tying it to the bounding-box length to cheat the list and removing links to the sheet metal properties so it looks like a welment. If I could get in there and just add that to the default properties that would shave a lot of time off the process.
