wall thickness table for sheet metal

wall thickness table for sheet metal

I was looking to see if there was a wall thickness table for sheet metal as there is for internal bend radii. It seems that "pull down" should open up to where you can have one linked. This suggestion stems from designers typing in various thickness for the same stock i.e. .060, .062, .063 for 1/16 aluminium. It has caused some issues here when creating flat patterns for our internal shop. There was a day when all designers here were pretty much on the same page, but an influx of hiring over the past 10 years has created a "free-for-all" in designing processes and creativity. We all know there are various ways to create the same part and sometimes this can create issues when the released part/assy is to be modified and the task is given to a different person than the one who initially deigned it. But that's another story, and a long one, for another day. Having a table, similar to the one for Bend Allowances  to give the ability to select material thicknesses rather than type them in would just be helpful.

Just IMHO...thanks for listeningBend Allowance tableBend Allowance tablethickness.JPG
