Hi all,

 

I got a .DWG drawing from a client, and tey want me to implement that template on Inventor for the furthere drawings for this new project.

 

Can any one help me and learn me how to make/create/ customize a newTaemplate in Inventor?

 

Thank you in advance

Hi Sohaib

 

When you say "implement that template on Inventor" do you then mean, implementing functions in the template, settings, og do you mean the titleblock.

 

As i understand you you mean title block... makes most sense to me :smileyhappy:

 

Making a template is relatively easy, you just save your (in this case) IDW, in the Template folder. See Application Options --> File, or look in your project file, that can be set up to overrule it. 

 

If you start a new IDW you can choose to create a new title block, and then you should be able to copy - paste the titleblock from the DWG you got from a client.. you will propably need to adjust it to make it fit and so on...

 

Hope it helps you..
