Need specific decimal precision in BOM for each dim, in each part.

I have created custom properties to show capture associative dims for  L x W x H.  I called these dims, DIM1, DIM2 and DIM3 respectively.  The evaluated value shown however does not reflect my assigned decimal precision, rather it shows the document precision settings.  I have found that I can round with an equation {3}`DIM1`," x " {3}`DIM2`," x " {2}`DIM3` but this creates a general setting for all dims in the BOM.  I want specific control of each associative dim precision, as it pertains to each component, as it is a requirement at my company......regardless of ANSI or ISO standards, so please no Smart a@@ comments as I am well aware of the standards. Our BOMs are required to match our title block tolerance.  I have even gone so far as to make a rounded global variable (Ie. "Length" =Round(D1@Boss_Extrude1,3)) and then used it as DIM1 ect. in custom properties, which works great for everything other than whole numbers, in which case it will not return trailing zeros.  Any help would be appreciated.
