linked thickness to multiple sheet metal parts

Hello,

 

I am designing a sheet metal cover made from multiple sheet metal parts, put together into an assembly/sub-assemblies. Is there a way to link the thickness of multiple sheet metal parts? I would like to be able to change a single variable, equation, or dimension to have every part change.

 

For dimensions other than sheet metal thickness and default bend radius, I was able to follow the instructions from https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/24477 successfully. However, I could not modify the thickness dimension for the sheet metal parts. I think it might be because the thickness within each part is already linked, but I don't know that for sure.

 

Thanks for your help!
