How to create a Drawing Template and how to maintain them in a PDM for others to follow.
We want to maintain the Drawing templates in PDM (Eg: Windchill / Agile) for all engineers to follow. Did any one come across any procedure how to achieve?
I use Smarteam and I'm sure others are the same. In the SW, you can place your templates under the System Options -> Default Templates.
If you asking about how to create them, then that's another story.
Open your Drawing than Save as a template (Save as > Drawing Template) or just copy your existing template files to the PDM. Make sure everybody can see that folder and files. And also exist as a local file for everybody. (In SolidWorks PDM you have an option for that.)
Than set this location in SolidWorks: Options > File Locations > Documents Templates.
