3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides the unique capabilities to the Engineering team to manage
and organize the CAD data to the Platform.
Templates are a great way to control standards and to help ensure consistency throughout
the designs that many users create. Templates are usually tailored to company-specific
requirements and can save you time during the initial setup.
You can create custom templates to use as the basis for new part, drawing and assembly
In your template, you can customize document properties such as units of measure and
dimensioning standards and custom properties. You can also include items such as sketches, notes
and features in the graphics area. By using shared templates, users ensure that key specifications
such as units and document appearance are consistent across designs, regardless of the individual
Managing templates through the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform facilitates enforcing
If a template is new (does not yet exist in 3DEXPERIENCE), all the Save commands open the
Create Template dialogue box shown in the following image:
If a template file already exists in 3DEXPERIENCE, all Save commands open the Edit Template dialogue box shown in the next image. Silent save is not supported for templates.
Template files must be locked before you can save them again after the initial save. If the
template file is not locked, the following message appears:
Templates cannot have external references. Therefore, MySession shows a single row when
a template is open in SOLIDWORKS:
Templates you create in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform have the following characteristics:
– They use the XCAD Template type, governed by the Engineering Resource Classic policy.
– They are searchable (they are indexed). “XCADtemplate”
– You can delete them using the Collaborative Lifecycle or Bookmark Editor app. Administrative privileges are required to delete templates in the Frozen, Released and Obsolete states.
