How to set material thickness as a variable for family of parts.

I have created this master part but neglected to assign the material thickness as a varible. I now assigned material thickness to be a variable but get an error message when I attempt to change it from its default value. I get the error message, " Unable to modify material properties. Model may have dimensions and relationship established preventing modification". How can I fix this with out having to start from scratch?

 

Thanks!

You can change material thickness from Tools, Variables, MaterialThickness.

You most likely get the error because "Material Thickness" has already been assigned by the system. It is already assigned - see video:-
