When I create a sheet metal part, the part thickness is not connected to the variable.
Welcome to SolidWorks forums Stefano.
What exactly you mean by part thickness is not connected to the variable? Can you attach one sample part to check.
Please use "advanced editor" in case you want to attach any files.
You might also find this post helpful for your future reference.
In SolidWorks 2012, when you make a sheet metal part, the dimension of the thickness is linked automatically.
In SolidWorks 2013, when you make a sheet metal part, the dimension of the thickness is not linked automatically.
I'm not in front of SW right now but will check and revert back.
OK, this one seems as bug or I'm missing something. Anyway raise any SR on the issue.
if you want to connect a variable to the thickness ==> you can use equation editor ==>see pic 1
if you want to connect thickness to another variable ==> you can do it dirctly by double click thickness dim ==> see pic2
