How do I create a new plate thickness for folded plates? I use a lot of #12 ga plate for pan stairs and it is .075" thick. The closest thing I have found was 1/16" but I need it to be .075" with a description of #12 ga for the Bill of materials. Please advise

You have the option of changing the unit settings of the drawing from the Home tab Explore panel. Select the project settings and from the length unit panel you are able to change the precision. It is recommended that you keep the model units at 1/16 as the model will be too precise when you use snaps.  You would change the description by adding a free remark. For the bill of materials use variable. See screen shots.

Hope this helps.
