Custom templates via "Application > Drafting"

Hello, 

 

 

I've created custom templates for our company. I've added the .prt file in the UGII/templates folder, and also update the .PAX file.   The templates do show up in "New > drawing", but they do not show up when I first create a model, and then go to Application > drafting. 

 

I've noticed that I can use the custom template when selecting "stand-alone part", and not "reference existing part".

 

Is it possible to get the custom template to also show up in the next window:

Re: Custom templates via "Application > Drafting"

For drawing sheets, there are 2 PAX files:

- ugs_drawing_templates.pax (for teamcenter, nxdm_ugs_drawing_templates.pax)
This is when you create a new "drawing" FILE

 

- ugs_sheet_templates.pax (for teamcenter, nxdm_ugs_sheet_templates.pax)
This is when you create a new drawing SHEET in an EXISTING file

 

You need to edit both.

What Ken has said is correct, if you what to understand the pax files a bit more, I created a bunch of videos about drafting templates and one covers the pax files: https://vimeo.com/album/3065578

Only humbly following in the footsteps of those who laid the path before me like yourself Ken & Rob Cohon.
