The first time you create an assembly document after adding in SolidWorks
Routing, a routing template is created. The routing template uses the
same settings as the standard assembly template, but also contains special
routing-related model data. (The routing-related model data is not user-accessible.)
The automatically created template is named routeAssembly.asmdot,
and is located in the default template folder (typically C:\Documents
and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SolidWorks\SolidWorks<version>\templates).
To create a custom routing template:
Open the routing template that was created automatically.
Make your changes. (For example, set different
