But I can't seem to figure out how to reference those properties when working on an actual part in part design, and the autocomplete doesn't seem to produce anything useful here:
Obviously I can define these properties on the part itself and then reference them as DIMS_WallThickness, etc. but since many of these properties will be shared across multiple parts, I wanted to add them to an object that wasn't connected to any particular part in case that part gets removed as I iterate. What is the right pattern here if I want to do this with properties and not spreadsheets?
