9.3.2. Template

In the following you will see an example how you can work with templates in the PARTdataManager.

[Note] Note

You can follow the example once you have installed the training.cip.

(Training/assembly/hinge)

Call the template in PARTproject via context menu command Open with PARTdataManager.

In contrast to the configuration, the assembly template (file format *.sbl/tpl) is automatically assembled, completely or at least partly.

In the Assembly, the Start element and the pendent assembly parts will immediately appear (see Fig. „Templates with complete self-assembly“).

The selection list area remains empty.

Template types

  1. Templates with complete self-assembling are able to configure themselves 100% alone.

    There are no longer any free (green) connection points. All connection points are displayed in black lettering.

    Single elements can be removed, or (if available) replaced by alternative characteristics

    After a row change, the template reassembles itself completely.

  2. Templates with partial self-assembling are assembled with a certain basic structure. Some Connection points remain open (green) and may be occupied by pre-generated elements. This template variant shows a mix between configuration and full template. It may be changed and/or reduced.

    [Note] Note

    The example can be found in the trainings catalog under "Bausteine/Bausteine Auto".

  3. Fixed template: It assembles itself 100% alone, however - in contrast to other template types - it can neither be changed nor reduced.

    [Note] Note

    The fixation cannot be cancelled again!

[Note] Note

If you do not use a template as such, but in the course of building an assembly table project, then please regard Section 9.8.4, “Create template”.
