For sheet metal parts drawings, I would like to add a cell in the Title Block that will automatically populate with the part's sheet metal thickness. What's the best way to do this?
Add a property named thickness (or what ever name) in the part and set the value to thickness. Now in drawing create the note which is linked to that thickness property. Now whenever you would add the sheet metal part (which has that property) in the drawing, the value would populate.
I would suggest you to create a separate template for the sheet metal part and have that thickness property added.
OK, but can I make the property automatically pick up the thickness value or do I have to manually type it in to the part's properties?
In the Summary Information in the part select "Thickness" in the "value/Text Expression". You should see it there if you have made a sheet metal part.
