I didn't open your part....but if you want to get the default templates back for Solidworks, then (Posted here as well: Crusty Old Template File Gotcha ):
To create brand new templates from scratch:
- Go to your templates folder (defined here:
- Then restart Solidworks, and click File-->New
- Click the "Novice" button (if it doesn't already bring you to the "novice" area.
- This should create 3 new templates
- Now take those templates and modify them to your heart's content.
- Now you have Brand new, shiny templates
Thank you for this helpful info, I didn`t know about it.
For future reference, please include the version of SW you are using. I thought I remembered you were on SW2017 but when that version would not open the template, I switched to SW2018. Thanks in advance.
When I opened your template, the config was named Default not S so I renamed it.
I assume you want your weldment template to have a Default <As Machined> top level config and a Default <As Welded> derived config.
I know you know how to turn on creating derived configs for weldments so I will not bore you with those details.
After you turn the derived option back on, you create a new "Default" config. As you can see from my screen shot below, a <as machined> and <as welded> config was created. Now you delete the "S" config and save the model as a template.
Is this what you were asking?
Yes, thanks, you`ve forced SW to create new configuration, good idea:)
It`s good idea to add ability to set 18th release of SW in profile
