Sheet metal thickness

Hi! I would like to automate my drawings a little but further than it already is.

I would like to know how to add the name of the sheet metal rule used in my drawings.

 

For example, in these rules, I have "11 GA" "14 GA" "SS 11 GA" and "SS 14 GA", etc...

I would like to be able to add this name to my drawing when I create it. How can I achieve this?

 

i have attached a picture showing what I would like to add to my drawings.

 

Thanks a lot guys!

Nevermind I have found it, I created a variable named "TypeMaterial" and entered this equation "=<Sheet Metal Rule>"

 

Now, what I would need is to be able to show it only when the model used is a sheet metal.

Is it possible? If so, how can I achieve this? (I would prefer without iLogic, but if this isn't possible I will go with iLogic)
