I have custom properties setup in my parts for the size, usually I link it to a dimension on a sketch for the length, width or height. Is a way to do this for the sheet metal flat pattern?
The length and width for the flat pattern, and a number of other properties, of a sheet metal part are in the Cut List (once a cut list item is created). In the Feature Tree, right click on Cut List and check Create Cut List Automatically and Update Automatically if they are not already checked. Expand Cut List and right click on the cut list item and select properties. You will see a list of Properties including the Bounding Box Length and Width.
You can use the same Expression in a Custom Property and it should evaluate. If the part is called Part1 and assuming the Cut List Item has not been renamed the length and width expressions should be: -
"SW-Bounding Box Length@@@Cut-List-Item1@Part1.SLDPRT"
"SW-Bounding Box Width@@@Cut-List-Item1@Part1.SLDPRT"
For Multi body sheet metal parts there will be multiple cut list items.
