    Default Using "IF, THEN" expression for Sheet Metal Thickness call out.

    I am trying to find an ilogic formula or some other alternative to change the sheet metal "thickness" (0.1345) to read "10GA" automatically in my parts list. It is quite useful to have the "thickness" auto populate in the parts list, but fabricators would rather see guage material called out.

    Thanks in advance.

    Scott

    Actually, it is the simplest dang thing...

    use: = <Sheet Metal Rule>
    in the parts list add "Stock Number" to the column desired.

    its not letting me upload video.
    So, in your part just add "=<Sheet Metal Rule>" in the iproperty "Stock Number". The sheet metal rule should be assigned 16GA, 12GA etc...

    Thanks for the update. For video, usually its just a link to youtube, vimeo, etc. If you want to upload a file, the file uploader tells you what extensions are allowed. If its not on the list, zip it. Files size matters too.
