About This On-Demand Webinar

SOLIDWORKS Templates are an essential aspect of the SOLIDWORKS family and below we will preface some of the information presented above by giving you a more in-depth look at the uses and benefits of SOLIDWORKS Templates. 

Beginning with an overview, it's important to first address what exactly is a Template? A Template is a file type specified with your desired setting before you begin a project. By adjusting these setting from the beginning you no longer have to lose time on readjusting units or their precision each time you begin a new part document. 

These little adjustments and others will not only save you time, but keep you working in a more efficient and consistent manner in the long run. 

Ever want to come back or reuse those same setting? No worries, with SOLIDWORKS Templates you have the ability to create and then save those customized templates with the exact settings you wish to use both now and in the future. 

If you have every dealt with the time consuming task of changing your units from millimeters to inches with each new part document, or adjusting the decimal place precision of those units then SOLIDWORKS Templates may be you answer. Watch the webinar above to learn all the tips and tricks needed for using Part Templates.
